Ouch! I just ordered my TouchPad from Amazon (here today!). I was prepared to use Google Docs and Evernote via the public(ish) wifi to get around the whole QO editing issue. If I can't do that, though, I'm afraid the TouchPad is going to have to go back. I'll give it a try, though. Hopefully, my proxy set-up at work is different than your guys'.
Anyone have information on this? I brought my TouchPad into work, today and ran into the proxy issue. Considering half the reason I got a tablet was work-related, this is kind of a deal killer, for me. After working with it all weekend, I can't imagine how much less pleasant it would be to go to Android or iOS. Unfortunately, an enterprise device I can't use in the enterprise is just a pretty paperweight.
As far as I can tell none of the 4 proxy setting application will allow the HP App Catalog application to communicate. When the app is launched it reports that there is no network. Other apps that use the internet, not thru a web browser, have the same issue. The proxy setting apps that have been developed so far seem to only support web browsers and not internet access in general.
I am very happy with ProxySwitch by Robert Hesse. I am still hoping that someone will figure out an overall Proxy solution and not just a Web solution.
