WAMP Install & Proxy Config (1 post)

    I'm building a WP site to pull RSS feeds, which are in turn displayed on TV's around a factory. This is setup on a Win XP machine running the latest version of WAMP (as of 29/05).

    What I can't figure out is how to configure proxy settings correctly. I've added the below lines to wp-config:

    //proxy settings
    define('WP_PROXY_HOST', 'XX.XX.XX.XX');
    define('WP_PROXY_PORT', 'XXXX');
    define('WP_PROXY_USERNAME', 'domain\username');
    define('WP_PROXY_PASS', 'password');

    I have tested these proxy settings through a browser - I had to find the correct IP by opening the .pac file normally used for proxy settings.

    The RSS feeds in the WP admin panel fail to load with error:

    WP HTTP Error: Could not open handle for fopen() to http://wordpress.org/news/feeds (or other url)

    Does anyone know if there is additional config I need to apply here? Possibly within Apache on the WAMP install? I have Google'd this only to find incomplete forum threads / instructions.

    Thanks for your help,
