    How to access U1 from behind a proxy

    I am currently using DropBox quite effectively but would like to switch to Ubuntu One. However I cannot find any setting in U1 which allows me to access the Internet through a proxy server (unlike DropBox). Am I missing something?

    Regards,
    Phill

    There are obviously no one here that could help me with this request - could someone perhaps guide me into where else I could post this question?

    You could try to report a Bug on Launchpad. Or you can ask a Question on Launchpad.

    Or you could see if this FAQ helps.

    Or you could try to install the Ubuntu One Proxy Package.

    Please post any success here.

    Thanx for responding mparillo but no luck. The FAQ only tells me how to setup Gnome and Firefox's proxy settings, not Ubuntu One's settings. The Ubuntu One Proxy Package is only for the Ubuntu version of U1 not the Windows version (It is at work using my Win7 laptop where I am stuck behind a proxy server)

    I suppose I will have to report a bug....

    If you are on a Win7 laptop at work, can you try loading Ubuntu in a Virtual Machine? Maybe you can sync that way, as VMWare Player will simply pass the network packets through to Win7. If that works, then I believe there is a way to share folders between your host and client machines.
