    Hi. I've been using iPad for quite some time, but I've got some nagging problems that no one can help me with. So, this app caught my eye and I really hope someone can help me with my problem. (I started out blind this morning and thanks to a word of warning fm a fellow member, here I am).

    Anyway, I wonder if on Safari, we can configure proxy manually the same way we do so on a mac. I need to set the proxy so that I can access my school's online resources. So, on my mac, I was abe to set the proxy on Firefox.

    Please, is there anyone here who has the same need as I do? Would someone help me? Thanks.

    It's about to rain here in my area. Gotta be a cool night :)

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    I don't know a way to configure a proxy in Safari - I've not seen this question before, hopefully someone else may have a solution.

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Please read the rules too!!

    You can't configure a Proxy for Safari, but you can configure a proxy for a specific network.

    Go to Settings >> Wi-Fi, an tap the blue arrow next to the network (you may need to be in range for it to be listed). At the bottom you will see your HTTP Proxy setup. That's all I can tell you. I've never set up a proxy before.

    I've learned at least three things today myself, if I could only remember what they were. Oh well, I remember making a note of at least one of them, so that should make my quota for the day. :)
