Online Update of jAlbum Software

I get error messages while trying to load update information. My jAlbum installation is behind a proxy which I set in the advanced preferences (host, domain, port). The error message is: "java.io.IOException: java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: connect". I know that the proxy needs authentification but jAlbum doesnt ask for credentials.

Are you getting this error when you try to install a new version of jAlbum? Or when you try to install a new skin version? Does it help if, instead of responding to a prompt from within the application, you simply point your browser to the download page?

Ensure you haven't blocked jAlbum from accessing the internet in your software firewall.

Browser request works fine. Then the browser is asking for proxy credentials and opens page properly. This problem seems to be in the applications proxy communication.

There are no restrictions set because browser request works properly.

Good that you have a workaround. I'm sorry I can't help further cause I need to be able to reproduce the problem first.
