first let me thank you for your very great program. It's a great idea to
have all my favourite newsfeeds on my mobile, however I'm currently not
really able to
use it like I want. Everything runs fine if I'm connected to the cradle
or a wireless lan but If i try to refresh my feed cache while connected
by GPRS it seems
that pRSSReader 1.2.1 Beta can not pass the o2 Proxy which is necesseray
for Flatrate Access.
I've searched a little bit and found out that o2 only allows a few
UserAgents (like the one of PIE) to pass their Proxy (this is to prevent
Users from tunneling their Notebooks trough the WAP2.0 Flat).
Additionally every HTTP-REQUEST must include a UA-profile (which can be
bogus, as the proxy doesn't check the data).
It would be very great for a lot of German Users if there was an option
in pRSSReader that allows the user to change the UserAgent or the whole
If you need someone to test it: i'm your man.
Additionally I would be glad if I could participate by transalting the
next version to German.
