I'd pretty much come to the same conclusion.  I'd really like to get a
pproxy running here to make it easy for others in the company to join
the challenge, but it just won't work for me - I believe we have MS
proxy server too.  I tried to join the pproxy mailing list but only got
bounces from the list manager.  Does anyone have any more info on
whether or when it is likely to be fixed ?
