(More) Proxy Trouble

I new to Android and Java, but I am a roperdeveloper.

I trying to get the emulator to work behind the company proxy, and
thought I had it cracked but I haven.  Ie set up the APN using the
proxy name, port, username and password and now the Browser
application is happy it will pull pages back and display them.  But
following the HelloGoogleMaps and HelloWebView  tutorials and they
don work.  I tried this at on the other side of the proxy and it
works fine for both (so my Google key is OK).

So what I know is...
-http-proxy apparently doesn work
-verbose-proxy should be ebug-proxy but it doesn tell me much
I have <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
in my manifest file.
The SQL INSERT may work but I find it a little offensive that I have
to do it so am still looking for a cleaner official way of resolving

I concluding that this must be a proxy issue as the code works fine
on the other side of the proxy, but I struggling to see how to set
the proxy up correctly for applications.  I thought setting the APN
would be enough but it appears not to be.

Do I need to tell the app to use the APN or something?  How?  As I say
I new to Java and Android so I don know if this is a Java thing or
an Android thing.

Can anyone help?

(More) Proxy Trouble

 I confirm that -http-proxy doesn't work on Windows (it does on Linux and OS
X though). A fix will be available with the next tools release.
Sorry about that.

1. Keytool isn't working

Every time I try to use the keytool to get a key for my maps API, it

2. WebView rtsp issue

Hi All,

I have a web page which I am trying to watch in my Android mobile -

When I view this web page in the Android internet browser, it displays
a list of products with thumbnail images. If I click a thumbnail, it
plays a video. This 3gp video is actually streamed via a rtsp link.

I created a small application in Android with Webkit WebView control.
When the above web page is viewed in Webview, the page is displayed
with thumbnails properly. But, when I click a thumbnail, the rtsp 3gp
streamed video is not playing. Instead, an error message indicating
that the page may not be available is displayed.

I think Webview uses the same engine as the Internet Browser. But, I
am not sure why RTSP streamed video is not working via Webview.

I am sure I am missing something simple. Could someone please help?
