Twitter import problem (proxy issue?)

Aug 26, 2009 at 12:11 PM


I'm behind a corporate network which uses a web proxy and I get this error when trying to run the Twitter import tool: -


The Twitter network information couldn't be obtained


[WebException]: The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required


Is there any way NodeXL can read the internet proxy settings and use these?

Thanks, Dave.

Thanks for reporting this problem.  I'll investigate it.

Could this fix be incorporated into the next fix?  I'd love to take advantage of the new Twitter improvments, but I can't because I'm behind a corporate network proxy which requires authentication.

I did some preliminary research when you reported the problem and didn't find an obvious solution, so I added it to our issue list.

Does the problem occur only when you enter your Twitter screen name and password into NodeXL's Twitter dialog boxes, or does it occur even if you leave them empty?
