This article particularly applies to Queensland Department of Education customers.
We have done more work on authenticated proxies which are used in a small number of school systems, in particular Department of Education schools in Queensland.
Lots of school systems use a proxy system for their internet. This allows the school to manage internet access and have more control over the sort of information provided to students. Some schools have an authenticated proxy system which will force you to put in your username and password to use any program which accesses the Internet. It is believed that this makes the system more secure but typically users hate the extra intrusion.
Efofex products can be successfully installed into this environment (including EdQld computers) and we have recently made some changes to ensure that the impact on your usage is minimized.
If you think your school uses an authenticated proxy and you have found our products difficult to use in this environment, now would be a great time to download fresh versions.
