Hi Marco,

glad that you roled up the proxy-topic again :-)

We have several problems with it and I tried to track this down to some point 
but got lost in QT-stuff. One of my collegues told me that QT uses the 
CONNECT-method which at least fails on our proxy-server.

Apart from that, using QT 4.2.x worked though. I dont have a QT4.2.x-build at 
hand so I cannot really test against current qgis-trunk.

I could give it a go to test. Let me know which revision-number is testable.

Best regards


PS: It would be good to have a noproxy-entry, because some clients complain 
that they cannot use internal and external WMS in one QGIS-Session.
