My PlayBook app is not able to connect to the internet from my computer that requires a proxy connection to the internet. I do not have this problem at my house because I do not use a proxy at home.
How do I cofigure the proxy settings on the PlayBook? Or Vmware player or do I have to configure something within my air application?
A standalone air application uses the system proxy settings.. but what does the PlayBook on VMWARE use?

Ha, yeah I have a proxy that I am behind as well and I can't access anything outside of the network. Tried making a proxy server and routed all traffic through, but still no luck. The QnxStageWebView is getting the data but I have no idea why it is not displaying anything, I get no errors of any kind.

hi, Did anyone got solution for the proxy server configuration of the emulator on VMWare? I think there should be a way as all the corporates have their proxy server configured for the internet access. Or does the playbook emulator works only if there are no proxy server configured?
Thanks in Advance,

As far as the QNXStageWebView goes it was the authentication that was causing the issue. Once I recieved DMZ access it worked fine. You can set the proxy setting for the VMPlayer but it defaults to your default browser settings (IE).

Hi L7 Col,
I am also facing the problem: getting net access in Playbook simulator behind proxy. I did the proxy settings in the VMPlayer, but I was not able to access the internet.
Can you explain how did you make the internet work in Playbook simulator running on PC using Proxy, thank you.

I have this same problem. I am unable to connect to the internet from the simulator while I am behind our corporate web proxy.

I have the same issue. My desktop is behind a firewall and so the HTTP traffic from the Playbook simulator is not going through(the Playbook browser can't go to any website). Is there a way to set the proxy server in the Playbook OS or in the VMPlayer?
