- Installation of WordPress 2.7+
- Corporate firewall requires Username and Password for access to the Interent (due to content filtering requirements)
- Dashboard (Autoupdate and other features) does not retrieve data.
My installation of wordpress is sat on a network that requires user login and password to access the internet (Active Directory authentication) with the likes of Firefox requesting username and password at the beginning of a session.
As a result, when I login to the installation to check for updates to plugins, the dashboard details and so on, the system does not give me any updates as it cannot access the internet without the required authentication.
Is there any patches, options or other way I can get the installation to perform the updates automagically.
