I am running hosted version (both apache and test client) on one windows xp laptop that has IE8. When I submit a test via the hosted website, IE8 fires up but the proxy settings are not enabled in the browser. This is a problem as some URL’s on the web page I am testing need to go via a proxy.
To prove this I viewed the proxy settings in the browser when it was fired up by urlblast. I could see the proxy server entry but the check box to enable it was not ticked. (I had to be quick as the browser window didn’t appear for long before it shut down). The screenshot taken by urlblast during the test is attached.
Note: When I fire up IE8 manually, the proxy settings are enabled.
Any ideas on the best way to solve this?
