Downloading Windows 8 apps through CyBlock Proxy & CyBlock Appliance

Windows 8 Store does not respond to authentication requests. This can cause errors with downloading applications through the proxy.

Authentication can be bypassed in the Authentication Manager.

  1. Navigate to User Management – Authentication and select the Bypass tab¹.
  2. Click the green button button².
  3. Create the following three separate entries (with asterisks):
URL or Domain User-Agent
* *
* *
* MSappsHost/*


¹ For version 6.8.3a and earlier: Advanced Settings – Proxy Settings – Authentication Manager
² For version 6.8.3a and earlier: Click Add new bypass entry at the bottom of the Bypassed section of the screen.
