Connection Issue

With Folder Share under the Proxy tab of the Settings dialog, I was able to
set the Proxy Type (I used HTTP (username/password), the Hostname or IP, the
Port, Username and Password. For the latter two, I supplied my network
Login ID and Password.

As corporate policy required that the network password be changed every
month, so every month, I had to supply the new password to the Folder Share
Proxy Settings.

Under Live Sync I have tried all of the available Proxy types, specifying
where applicable the same Hostname/IP and Port that I used with Folder
Share, but there is no where available for me to supply my network login
name and current password.

Possibly, because I am not supplying the network login details, I am unable
to connect and in every case receive the Windows Live Sync error message:

Windows Live Sync can't connect to the server. There may be a problem with
your proxy server settings.

Does anyone know how I can get around this obstacle.

See my post of to-day's date in the Windows.Live.Sync newsgroup for how this
problem was solved.

Hope this helps.
