I have the latest HPCAS installed and configured. This is the Free Starter Version of HPCA: Version : 07.20.000 Build Date : 20080711014530
Seems all works execpt I cannot populate patches... I have a proxy server and user account deefined and can get to the FTP site directly from a Browser session on the server or from my desktop. No matter what, the patches do no download!!!
What happens if you change your proxy id\pw in the CAS console settings. Do you get a different HTTP failure code? Does this suggest that you are using the correct id\pw in the first instance? I'm sure you are but maybe something to check.
Also, what type of authentication does your actual proxy server use? As i recall we only support basic authentication method. Maybe you have a differnt method set on the proxy server. If so, is it possible to test with basic authentication?
