I see that if I did a long touch over a Wifi network, I can specify some proxy settings. In my company we use a Isa Proxy server, and each user has to login through domain server.

Is there any way to configure that on our tablets? ( Android 4.1)

  • How is that login done manually? Is it a so-called "captive portal", where you login via web browser?

  • nop. It is our company network wifi. We connect yo internet through isa proxy server I think, using proxy server ip, 8080 port and our domain user and password

  • Ah, I see. Android 4.1, huh? Try long-press the corresponding AP in your network list, chose "edit", enable "advanced". Fill in your proxy configuration. Check if that solves your issue, and please report back; if that did the trick, I will set up a corresponding (and more detailed) answer.

  • Yap, I tried that but there is no place to setup the domain username and password.

    Oh, I see. Is your device rooted? Then you might want to take a look at ProxyDroid. Another thing worth a try is using user:pass@proxyserver for the server address (e.g. if the proxy is 10.11.12.1, user joe, password foo: joe:[email protected]) -- this is how it works in some browsers for password-protected urls. If that does not work, another page worth reading on the issue is Android-Proxy.Blogspot.DE (don't be irritated by .DE, it's in English).

There are multiple solutions. As you have Android 4.x, long-pressing on a WiFi APN in Settings→Networks & Wireless→WiFi lets you edit an APN. Check the "Advanced" box, and you can configure the proxy. Though this form does not offer separate fields for username/password, here's a trick how to do it:

For the server name, enter user:pass@proxyserver (e.g. if the proxy is 10.11.12.1, user joe, password foo: joe:[email protected]) -- this is how it works in some browsers for password-protected urls. In case this makes trouble (should not, but who knows), further details can be found at Android-Proxy.Blogspot.DE (don't be irritated by .DE, it's in English).

Another possibility would require your device to be rooted: ProxyDroid offers some comfort in connection with proxies. Next to supporting multiple profiles, it is also capable of handling different authentication methods.

  • The WiFi APN won't allow me to save any changes to the proxy when there is a '@' character in the server name. I'm using Android version 4.1.1. Commented Aug 18, 2014 at 18:48
  • What has an "@" sign to do in a server name? I'm not 100% sure (would need to check that with the corresponding RFC), but I don't think it should be there. Could cause confusion if that server shall act as part of an email address: johndoe@[email protected]: Which part is the user, and which part the server name here? I'm tempted to say it's the fault of the person naming that server ;)

  • Sorry, I meant doing user:pass@proxyserver does not work for me when setting up the proxy in Android. It won't allow me to save the modified WiFi settings when I type that in the server name field ("Save" is faded out). When I remove the '@' symbol, then it allows me to save the settings.

  • Ah, OK. First time I hear that. If there are no dedicated fields for user/pass, I have no idea what to do in such a case then, sorry.

You can use the Drony application to authenticate with your proxy.

    Would you mind including a link to the app you're recommending? I cannot find any app with that name.
