I have to amend my original posting. Further experimentation this afternoon has shown that TWebUpdate does work with Basic authentication. I have to provide the userid and password for the proxy server to the program, and there's a 2 minute delay when the connection starts before it actually seems to begin working, but I _was_ able to get my software to automatically update. Just was taking longer than I thought, and I was stopping my test program too early. I got distracted one time and left it alone, and came back to an "Update complete" message, and it actually had updated. Not a bad way to end the day. It apparently doesn't work at all with NTLM, though. That was what we were beating on last week - we switched to Basic today to see how it fared. I'm still interested in comments/opinions on the status of the proxy support in ICS - I may want to write my own updater anyway.
