 Does anyone know how to connect to the internet via a proxy server on
a g1 handset? I need to use a proxy server at school to get on the
internet on wifi.

Cheers

 I also need the exact same help, my school uses a proxy server to
access the web.

Also my home wireless doesn't need a proxy to access the web.

I know the iPhone and iPod touch can use multiple proxy settings
depending on the network it is connected to but what about the G1

How to use proxy server on the g1?

 Sounds like an opportunity for someone to write an app. The source for 
the proxy settings page is in;

/packages/apps/Settings/src/com/android/settings/ProxySelector.java

in the git repository, so couldn't someone write an app using that, add 
in some buttons to change configuration and some optional Geo-location 
to switch proxy settings automatically based one where you are and it'll 
probably be a popular app.

Or is it another piece of  functionality limited to the in-crowd who can 
get their app signed with the right certificate?

How to use proxy server on the g1?

 ello,

I've written an application which may help, it allows you to use the
browser from behind a proxy server on a WIFI network. Search for the
"ProxySetting" application on the market (its free).

At the moment Android only allows proxy information to be used when
you are connected to a GPRS/3G network, there's a bug raised about it
here: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=1273. The
ProxySetting application works around the problem, but unfortunately
it's still a bit limited (by Android): It does allow for using the web
browser behind a non-authenticated proxy, but apps such as Maps and
Youtube don't currently work and there's no way to add a username/
password for the proxy.

I'm sure this will be sorted out properly by the Android team, but
until then hopefully the ProxySetting app will help.

Please let me know if it works or if you have any problems (I've only
just posted it on the Market so haven't had any feedback yet).

Thanks!

 'm not sure at the moment why it only works for the browser. I'm
investigating how to get it working using gmail and the market as I've
got the same problem in my office. I'll let you know when I have some
more info.

Thanks

 ello,

I've been looking at this in a bit more detail and unfortunately it
looks like the ProxySetting app cannot be updated to allow apps like
market, youtube etc to work over a wifi proxy. I could be mistaken,
but I think the reason is that the browser checks for a configured
proxy in the database and uses that proxy if the phone is on a mobile
network, but the other apps don't do this.

The ProxySetting app updates the relevant information in the database
and then sends a notification to the browser that the phone is using a
mobile network (even though it's actually on wifi). So the browser
thinks it's on a mobile network and updates it's proxy information,
requests are then sent over wifi to the proxy.

The other apps seem to ignore the proxy settings (possibly they're not
using HTTP and the proxy settings are specific to HTTP). Even other
browsers like Steel don't seem to apply proxy settings. I think the
real fix would be for Android to be updated to allow for proxy
settings to be entered for a particular wifi network and for all the
apps to be updated to listen for network changes and update to the
correct proxy. I'm sure this will be done at some point as it's a
fairly major problem in my opinion.

Thanks

Other Threads

1. Intent.ACTION_SYNC no docs or resolveInfo

i would like to trigger the "synchronize now" feature (in the sync
settings screen) from my app.
i have found Intent.ACTION_SYNC but the documentation states

Activity Action: Perform a data synchronization.
Input: ?
Output: ?

after creating the intent according to the action name, i used
PackageManager's queryIntentActivities method (with flag
GET_INTENT_FILTERS) and found that no ResolveInfo objects are returned

ideas on how to perform a data synchronization would be greatly
appreciated
