Question

Slido/Power point over proxy server.

Hello,

The sli.do addin for PowerPoint does not seem to like a proxy server with authentication.

The log:

13:55:51.775 INF] The addin is connected to Slido API through a proxy. (Proxy server address: "http://xxxxxxx:8012/").  real servername replace by xxxxx
[13:55:52.519 ERR] Unable to create a new app instance on server. Missing proxy authentication (required scheme "BASIC realm="PROXY_INTERNET"").
System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required.
   at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.EndGetRequestStream(IAsyncResult asyncResult, TransportContext& context)
   at System.Net.Http.HttpClientHandler.GetRequestStreamCallback(IAsyncResult ar)

 

So it detects very well the correct proxyserver, but there is no prompt for a login/pwd for the proxyserver, as most programs do in such case.

Hi William,

Slido for Windows does not support proxy with authentication.

One option is to configure proxy to not require authentication for these domains:

  • *.slido.com
  • *.sli.do
  • data.logentries.com

Regards,
Jozi
