Description Guilherme 2011-05-25 15:09:20 UTC

Proxy authentication 

On a enterprise where access to the internet is done by a proxy with authentication, you cannot copy a web page and paste into a LibreOffice document without loosing your linked graphics or objects. This is because the graphics are pasted as linked images and since LibreOffice does not have a proxy authentication dialog, the proxy will not let the graphic to be read. 

The same issue raises if you plan to have your stock market prices inserted into a spreadsheet, behind an authenticated proxy. It will not work. 

The issuezilla number is 59287. 


Couldn’t find the issuezilla mentioned on the wiki, and created a new one.

Could reproduce the bug on LO 3.3.1 on Windows XP.

Funny that I created a duplicate:
When doing web page content copy (comprising images) and paste in Writer, LO started asking for user name and password in Authentication required window.
Any page with images, example web page:
I guess this happens only if default route from the network is via proxy.
In my case, proxy wasn't enforced, direct connection was open. But LO likely uses system default route.
