I'm using WinBuilder 080, entered my proxy settings and selected HTTP for ping. Then click the "Download list of servers" button.

The program is then querying:

GET http://updates.boot-...der_Updates.ini HTTP/1.1

resulting in a 200 OK response, then it queries:

GET HTTP://google.com:80/bla.bla HTTP/1.1

which fails with a 404 error obviously.

Eventually a dialogue box appears to inform me that I need to be connected to the internet.

What can I do to use the program behind the proxy?

Regards, ska

The behaviour is part of an internal check:

    INetLog.debug('HTTP Ping: Get HTTP://' + URL + '/bla.bla');

    IndyComponent.Get('HTTP://' + URL + '/bla.bla');

    INetLog.debug('HTTP Ping result: ' + InttoStr(IndyComponent.ResponseCode));

    // The result may be additional dependant on the HTTP response code?

    Result := True;


    on e: Exception do


      INetLog.Error('HTTP Ping', e);

      if e.Message = 'HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found' then

        Result := True


        _Error := e.Message;



As to be seen the error 404 brings a True result, meaning 'Works'.

I currently have no idea what's going wrong with your host.

Maybe you test with the WBProxy program. It shares the proxy configuration with WinBuilder.exe.

I'm having the same issue. I've used the WBProxy program and it says.........

2012-07-06 10:18:31_105: [DEBUG] [2360] {TWBInternet} HTTP Ping: Get HTTP://sourceforge.net/bla.bla
2012-07-06 10:18:31_115: [ERROR] [2360] {TWBInternet} HTTP Ping (EIdSocketError: Socket Error # 0)
