Hi guys there i have built an instaDMG image and have everything working fine except for one last annoying bug that i cant work out.

There is a proxy authentication box that pops up and can not be cancelled. It also comes in front of all other windows.
The strange thing is that it has our uni proxy details on the box even though no proxy details are set in the network area.

I have included a picture of the box showing it next to the network preferences with no proxy.

I have disabled the "Automatically update safe downloads list" option but this has not worked.

I thought it might be trying to get apple updates so i have set our server as a software update server and am pointing the machins to that using MCX.
I dont know if that is working correctly though. I might use defaults to manually write it to the plist.

Short of that i am stumped. I need to know what is causing it so our students dont smash their quota with it. is it possible for it to be tied to iCloud somehow?
Has anybody heard of anything?

Thanks in advance

Nick

Firstly, keep "Automatically update safe downloads list" enabled as that is a new security feature from Apple.

If you have no proxies enabled in System Preferences, have you checked Firefox's preferences, which has it's own proxy settings?

I was trying to disable that option as somebody else posted they were getting proxy prompts because of it. The thing is this happens a a brand new fresh image with no software on it at all so it is not firefox doing this unfortunately.

The box can just pop up out of nowhere when the no apps are running and it is sitting on the desktop. Timing is random. Sometimes it happens soon after login and sometimes it can be up to 10 minutes from login
