Sencha Architect 2.2 Yet another proxy with authentication problem
Architect Build tested: Latest downloaded;
Description: Sencha Architect 2.2 manual proxy configuration does not work.
When testing with proxy Auto Detection : connects to the proxy but does not handle correctly 407 HTTP response code :"Proxy Authentication Required"
When testing with manual proxy configuration : does not even try to connect to the specified proxy.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
To test this you can try with Fiddler Web Debugging Proxy.
The result that was expected:
Internet connexion OK
The result that occurs instead:
Internet connexion KO
Proxy with authentication is a recurring problem with Sencha Architect for us since 2.0, even if it works fine on some random versions. A final workaround can be a web page where we enter email/activation code/MAC address and it generates us an offline license that we paste into Architect dialog window.
Thanks for the report. We've identified specific problems related to this and are testing fixes for it.
Sorry for the problems you've had with proxy in the past. We've identified this as an area where we need to improve and have taken steps to beef up our testing environment so that in the future we can find and fix problems ourselves rather than leaving that up to you.
I responded on the other thread, but will repeat it here for any visitors from the future: we have a build of Architect 2.2 that we are testing that addresses problems using Architect behind a proxy. I (gil at sencha) can point people privately to the build.
