CA eTrust update configuration, with no option to use the browser settings<rant>Why can’t application developers use the default browser settings for Internet access via a proxy? For two months now, I’ve been struggling with account lockouts whenever I visited the office (thankfully that’s not too often) and then today I discovered, purely by accident, that my anti-virus client was out of date and that I had it configured to use the corporate proxy server using what was probably an old password. Coincidence? We’ll see next time I visit the office. As you can see from this screenshot, I can enter proxy settings, even proxy authentication details but I can’t elect to use the browser settings (which I change according to whether I’m at home or in the office). Gahhhhhh!</rant>
