Goeiemiddag Henk,

In your example, you use port 8080 but in your log I see port 80.  
Which one is correct? Maybe you need to include a user name and  

Although I don't expect this to be the case, it is possible that the  
firewall or the proxy checks for the browser name, which is  
Revolution. Setting the httpHeaders to a known browser name might help.

You haven't included the script that sets your proxy, so I can't  
check that.

How did you create the log? What do you see if you connect with a  
regular browser?

The address after the GET command does not include a file. It just  
refers to a directory. You might want to point to an existing file  
for testing, to make sure that the server should return something.

Since your client seems to work with Windows, s/he may have set up  
the windows proxy settings already. If s/he did this correctly, set  
the httpProxy to empty. Revolution should use the default settings  
according to the docs (only on PC, not on Mac). If not, either the  
proxy was not set up property on that particular PC or you have found  
a bug in Revolution.
