Hi,

now that is one private-cloud enabled note-taking application to my likings :) Good work! 馃憤

But could you add the usual options to specify a HTTPS proxy? I'd need that in my corporate network...

Thanks!

Thank you for your kind words, @knobhead

Would be doable, but will be quite some work implementing all the option...
On a side note: note syncing itself is done by the ownCloud client (that supports proxies)

Hi @pbek,

Thanks for your quick reply! Unfortunately, I can't help with the code. While searching on potential workarounds on this issue I noticed that some QT applications seem to adhere to environment variables for proxy settings (http_proxy=10.0.0.1:8080, http_proxy=<host>:<port>). Might this be a starting point? This can be used in restricted Windows environments, too, most likely with a .CMD file.

Oops, didn't get that one! Will look into that.

Cheers!

Thank you for your hint.
As far as I have seen Qt can also use the default OS settings for proxies, but that doesn't work on every OS... I'll have to investigate more.

Works like a charm here (Win7), both with system settings and own settings in QOwnNotes! Thanks!

Great! It took a while to get a proxy server going to test it myself. 馃榿
