Windows b5 client bugs
SaltSpork Wrote:I didn't actually report any issues, it works fine for me behind the authenticated proxy in question. But that's because I set my systemwide proxy to CNTLM (local proxy authenticator so that you don't get constant password prompts) and I run Proxifier to capture the rest of the outgoing traffic and force it through the proxy (so that non-proxy aware apps work).

I'll do some investigating tomorrow and find out how b5 behaves with proxies under Windows.

I'd also love to test it under OS X (where I have the same CNTLM-Proxifier setup) but seeing as b5 crashes immediately on my bland 10.8.2 install with Gatekeeper disabled I'm out of luck for now.

Testing complete.

WhatPulse ignores the systemwide proxy configuration in Windows as I expected. This isn't an issue in itself and it eliminates one testing variable.

With the proxy option disabled in WhatPulse it makes a HTTPS connection directly to the server. Normally this would result in failure but since I'm running Proxifier the connection was instead captured.

[10.18 15:07:29] whatpulse.exe - beta.pulse-stats.whatpulse.org:443 open through proxy 127.0.0.1:3128 HTTPS

And it worked just fine.

Next I tested by setting WhatPulse to use a proxy without authentication required. Sure enough the test works and I'm able to pulse. No direct connections were being made.

Finally I set it to use the authenticated proxy. It failed regardless of username syntax.


From this I can conclude that the client does not work behind NTLM authenticated proxies without special configuration and third party software.
