Proxy server for Windows 8 APP live feed update ....

by kkcci88888 / January 20, 2013 11:06 AM PST

Hi,

All the internet access from my company needs to be pass through a proxy server from the Global server which needs a LDAP user name/password in order to access the internet resource. Recently, I purchase 2 set of Windows 8 professional 64B OEM machine, the IE is ok as I embed the proxy IP/LDAP user name/password etc.. I can also install some Windows APP from the store, however, all live feed seems blocked... Tried quite a lot work around but no cure...

Could I setup another internal proxy server (linux based) which store my LDAP user name/password in order to access the external resource and all Windows8 machine shall point the proxy to this Linux proxy server so it can use my LDAP user name/password... Is that work ??

Thanks in advance...

Windows 8 is even more restrictive in it's "server" role than prior Windows. You'll want to talk to folk like Cisco and Microsoft to find either an appliance or application for this. You've proven what you have doesn't work so I'll leave it at that.
