I can't install Ovi since I'm behind a proxy.
Is there a complete download? not just a web download?
Or why can't I define my proxy for the installer.
Does anyone have a work around?
If you are talking about Nokia OVI Suite installer,
then you can find the web installer in
and if you are not looking for ovi suite, kindly do mention, what exactly you are looking for
>>I can't install Ovi since I'm behind a proxy.
The Ovi web installer, at the URL you provided, requires a web connection.
BUT does not allow you to enter your proxy settings, where I am requires all internet connection to go via the company proxy.
So since I cannot enter the proxy server, user & pass, I cannot install the product.
Ovi seems to allow you to specifiy proxy details once installed, but not during installation.
Is there a work around or a installer that does not require a web connection?
Why dont you get some OVI Suite DVD from any of your friends so that you can install ? Is there any restriction for downloading from DVDs at your place ???
This is still remains.
You can download the installer, since a browser allows you to enter proxy settings.
when you run the installer it requires an internet connection, BUT if you are behind a proxy, then you are screwed. You cannot enter the settings for the proxy for the installer.
I've given up and brought an Magic (google phone).
Shame on Nokia for not even sorting this small simple issue, thus stopping me for using their phone.
I had the same problem (behind proxy). I was able to install/run Ovi by disconnecting my (LAN) network cable vainly hoping there would be some settings in the application to configure for a proxy.
If I start Ovi with the LAN connected, it dies. If I start Ovi without the LAN (behind proxy) it starts OK. I can then re-connect the LAN but Ovi still only connects online through my phone costing big $$$.
Did it not occur to the designers that some people work behind a proxy? Even if we can't go online, you would expect at the very least that the application would start without crashing and have the basic capacity to work offline, with the locally connected phone.
Poor effort Nokia...really **bleep** (out-sourced?) software
I connected my nokia and told it from the OVI dropdown to connect to the internet.
It then could access OVI for updates
Not super slick, but it worked
Now Nokia Ovi Suite has got 126.96.36.199, in which users can give their proxy settings in Nokia Ovi Suite
Nokia Ovi Suite > Tools > Options > General > Proxy
Correct, also in 188.8.131.520 it's only possible to set username/password.
But what about proxy name and port?
Maybe somebody from Nokia can advise. Is there a Windows registry setting that needs to be modified?
I install ovi 220245 instead of newest ovi 311XXX. When I asked to online upgrade to the latest update (ovi 311xxx) from older ovi (220245),wow....I can login to my account using proxy even using proxy username & password...
Setting the IE proxy setting is not enough. You also have to set the WinHTTP proxy setting via command line.
netsh winhttp set proxy <YOUR PROXY SERVER>:<PORT> "<EXCLUSION LIST>"
note: Be sure to run cmd.exe as administrator, when you set the winhttp proxy settings!
This does not help, correct proxy credentials are still refused.
