Hi All,

 

I have a funny situation, when iTunes (with iPhone connected) is launched from a company network there is a prompt for authentication to the proxy, I can get past this by entering an administrator username and password, this keeps popping up however.

 

I want to know, what is the exact URL that iTunes connects to the iTunes store from within the application AND if it's possible to have the default action when a device is connected to not check for software updates or connect to the store.....

 

Thanks,

There's a number of ports and servers that might be in play. The following document might be of some help (see the 3. Configure your security software section):

AND if it's possible to have the default action when a device is connected to not check for software updates or connect to the store.....

 

Depending on how the iTunes deployment is being managed, the following document might be of some help:

    b noir,

     

    Thanks for answering this, while it hasn't resolved the issue it has given a couple of things to try.  I need to test on a few users machines (mixed W7/XP) as the issue only "seems" to be happening on W7 machines.

     

    I'll report back when I have a further update.

    FYI for anyone else using a Cisco ScanSafe Web Filtering Solution:

     

    The windows version of iTunes doesn't support "silent" NTLM authentication, so if using a web filtering solution, this must be added to the exceptions.

     

    For Scan Safe (using the Connector):

    Modifiy the following two lines in the agent.properties file:

     

    user.agent.skip.authentication=true

    user.agent.skip.authentication.regexp=iTunes

     

    Restart the Connector service.
