Is there any way to configure the imp to access the internet using a Proxy server? (I imagine this is something that would need to be configured via the Blink-up app and there doesn’t appear to be any options to do this.)
Not currently, no. In theory it wouldn’t have to be part of Blink-up – the DHCP server could tell it – but that’s not implemented yet either.
In my particular instance the DHCP server does not give that information. There also isn’t currently a way to set a static IP address but I assume this is something that will be implemented in the future as well.
We have customers based in EU that make extensive use of proxy servers in their enterprise network. For some reason (unknown to me) in EU they seem to like their proxy server. Reminiscence of the past I guess but we are getting stuck because of that.
