CreatePushNotificationChannelForApplicationAsync via proxy is timeout.


  • Hi,

    I tried to update tile via WNS.

    I could get channel via direct internet, however I could not get channel via proxy.

    CreatePushNotificationChannelForApplicationAsync is timeout.

    How do I set proxy for getting channel connection?

  • It should pick up your proxy settings from your IE settings.

    Can you give me more details about your proxy?  Does it require authentication?  Are you able to get to the same URL using IE and Metro style IE?

  • Thank you for reply.

    My proxy does not require authentication. I set only address and port to proxy.

     Are you able to get to the same URL using IE and Metro style IE?

    What does it mean? Desktop IE and Metro style IE can connect internet such as http://jp.msn/com.

  • You can take a trace with Fiddler to see what is happening when CreatePushNotificationChannelForApplicationAsync tries to connect.

    Here are the instructions for using Fiddler with Windows 8 Metro style apps: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/fiddler/archive/2011/09/14/fiddler-and-windows-8-metro-style-applications-https-and-private-network-capabilities.aspx

    Please do this and then see if you can tell how your proxy responds or does not respond to the request.
