Using SPCB to view SharePoint Online from behind a proxy server

Jul 9, 2014 at 4:10 PM
Using SPBC to add a site on Office 365 SharePoint online through our corporate proxy server results in the error message 'The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required'.

Stack Overflow describes the problem and an answer that circumvented the problem for me.

I rebuilt SPBC2013 after amending app.config to include
  <system.net>
    <defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true" />
  </system.net>
Can you consider adding a configuration option to make SPCB work from behind a proxy server like this?

I put it on my list of things to do!

For your information, you don't have to rebuild the SPCB to make the change in de app.config file. You can add an app.config file in the same folder as SPCB2013.exe and add the lines above over there.
