Nokia C7, Connecting internet using proxy via WLAN(college firewall LDAP)

Hello guys,

 

I recently bought Nokia C7 and am lovin' it but I cannot connect it to the internet using our institute server, which requires a username and password authentification (called LDAP username and password), so here is what happens:

-> The phone successfully connects to the WLAN

-> but in order to use internet, i must get through our proxy which is a certain ip address 192.168.x.x on port number x

-> authentification needs to be done using username and password which i already have.

 

It would be helpful if anyone could provide me step by step procedure to do this. I am sure it is possible only i dno the correct config. Any help would be appreciated!

 

Kind Regards

Rahul

Usually, you get redirected to the company or uni's homepage to log in. Ask your IT dep for this home address and provide manually.

I too have simlar issue with my C7. I can connect to Wi-Fi with authentication put at EAP-Plugin setting with EAP-LEAP, and I have also put proxy ip and port as you have mentioned. However while surfing I get a challange prompting to enter proxy authentication and password. Can I store these credential as well somewhere so that I can surf as soon as I enter into this Wi-Fi zone? I saw it is possible in Apple iphone.

Has anyone fixed this issue? I posted something similar about trying to save user id and password for authentication against proxy servers on an N8 but no one responded ... seems nokia doesn't care much for this :smileyfrustrated: .... i saw somewhere that this can be done using the Nokia Configuration Tool, so I tried it out ... it has placeholders for the information but it does not get saved to the phone
