InfoLink through ISA Proxy

by hilltopper06 / January 14, 2009 5:40 AM PST

I do tech work for a school disctrict. They recently purchased some Samsung TVs that have the InfoLink feature. I hooked on up via an ethernet cable and it automatically picked up an IP and all of the correct settings for subnet mask, gateway, etc. When I test the connection everything checks out except for the very last test (domain ping/lookup). When I try to use the InfoLink feature I get no connection. All outgoing packets on my network go through a M$ ISA Server 2006. Any non-domain members attempting to access info on port 80 will typically have to provide domain user credentials. There is no way to input these credentials into the TV. Can this be added as a feature in the next update? Does anyone know of a work around other than disabling my ISA Server? Thanks.

Workaround...

hilltopper06,

I don't know of a workaround for that particular application. As far as updates to allow this kind of access, I don't know of any plans to incorporate a solution in this configuration.

Could I please request this as a feature to be added. I know that proxies are not too common in home settings, but in the workplace and the education sector they are predominant. I think the InfoLink feature sounds very promising and I do not think that adding proxy support to the network settings page would be too difficult. It would simply need to contain the following fields to meet all proxy users needs:

Proxy server address:
Proxy server port:
Requires authentication (yes/no checkbox)
Username:
Password:
Domain:

Again, I think that adding this as a feature should be fairly simple, and would allow the InfoLink feature to be used by more end users. Thanks.

Using Samsung TVs with Proxy

Same problem here, but its now July 2010 and I'm in New Zealand.

Also in an education setting and I can connect all the way through to the point where my network is expecting a login/password - and I need to specify the proxy setting.

Can workaround using a Mac mini - but that's hardly the point of integrated applications on the Samsung.

So any updating of the software for my U55C7000 would be grand.
