MobileMe control panel for Windows helps with proxy servers

Robert Palmer

Yesterday, Apple released MobileMe Control Panel for Windows 1.4, recommended for users on corporate networks that use proxy servers.

Some users were reporting errors when trying to sync contacts and calendars, or were unable to log into the MobileMe control panel at all. This update sorts that out.

According to Apple technical note on the subject, supported proxy server types include:

  • Web proxy servers (HTTP)
  • Secure Web proxy (HTTPS)
  • SOCKS proxy servers (see note below)
  • HTTP/HTTPS proxy servers that require authentication
  • Proxy bypass lists
  • Proxy auto-configuration (PAC) files

The update is available on the MobileMe website, and is also included with iTunes 8.2 for Windows.
