Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

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?

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

Hi,

 

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 :smileyhappy:

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

>>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?

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

Hi,

 

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 ???

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

Are you kidding? We need a proxy solution in Ovi suite for use inside a corporation. Why don´t provide a proxy support?

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

This is still remains.

 

You can download the installer, since a browser allows you to enter proxy settings.

 

BUT

 

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.

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

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

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

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

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

Any news regarding this problem?

I am also behind a corporate proxy and Ovi can't connect via LAN.

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

Correct, also in 3.0.0.290 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?

 

thanks

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

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!

Re: Ovi installer fails from behind proxy.

Thanks harishek,
I used proxycfg on Windows XP and this worked. I was able to logon the store, but I could not update the phone. Now it worked OK.

But Nokia, please fix this!

This does not help, correct proxy credentials are still refused.
