authentication via proxy server was unsuccessful

Hi

 

I have had a week on holiday near Edinburgh and while there i had a G signal on my Samsung galaxy S3 my problem was i kept getting a message

 

authentication via proxy server was unsuccessful

 

These are the settings i use 

http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/Giffgaff-internet-and-MMS-settings-for-Sams...

 

So i could not get on the net my e mail worked as did text and mms some apps would work and some did not connection error.

 

I have a goodybag and credit on my a/c so i am thinking it is something to do with settings.

 

At home i have H signal and i get on th enet however certain apps sytill can not connect off the mobile signal only wifi.

 

Any thoughts please

 

Allan

Try deleting the proxy server address ("193.113.200.195") in your APN settings. This is known to cause problems with some apps.

 

If no joy see if doing a manual roam helps http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/manual-roam/m-p/3345471#M32502

If you delete the APN and reenter the details then it won't disturb the rest of your phone's operations. Just the internet and /or MMS features.

Re: authentication via proxy server was unsuccessful

Thanks no it never worked i am able to send texts both types and it is really the not connecting for data that is the issue.

 

I am considering a clean re-set on the phone and start from scratch it is just a pain re setting everything again more so if i don't resolve the issue.

Re: authentication via proxy server was unsuccessful

If you use PDAnet, clear the proxy setting in that app.
