My work WiFi routes traffic through a proxy server. Is there a way to enter proxy server settings so that my Android can successfully make web requests? My previous phone was a WinMo 6.0 and this was easy to do (part of the setup wizard).

I have a Milestone on Android 2.1


There is an outstanding bug on this, from November 2008, with no sign of a fix. It's a real PITA, and a really obvious issue.

  • Anyone with this problem should visit the bug page above and 'star' this issue so it may get more attention. Unfortunately it's flagged as a 'feature request' whereas I'd consider it as a lack of basic functionality.

  • I think the bug is https over proxy rather than http.

You can get to the hidden http proxy settings via the 'Proxy Settings' app.
'Proxy Settings app at AppBrain.com

This should work for http sites and services but Android doesn't currently allow https via proxy!?! (so no Gmail or app downloads).
