Hello everyone.

The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.

There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality.

If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.

And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Connecting thru simple proxy

I'm using the Lens on my workplace's 'Guest' wireless network. In order to access the Internet, you need to first open a web page and click 'I Accept' on the terms and conditions - after that, you have (almost) full access to the interwebs.

I'm able to start the Edge browser and click on the 'I Accept' page, and I am then able to browse the web. However, the Holograms page complains that I'm not connected to the Internet.

I'll be able to load apps via USB if the wireless doesn't work, but I'm wondering why the Lens doesn't recognize my Internet connection and if it may cause problems in the future. Anybody have experience with this?



  • What is the "Holograms" page?

  • Your workplace's Guest network might be blocking certain types of traffic. Is there a better network to use?

  • timg: I mean the page on the Start menu where you can select certain holograms to place them - the astronaut, the velociraptor, etc...

    Pentose: Unfortunately, no. I can't put the HoloLens on the normal network at all. I suppose I can work with IT, look at what traffic the Lens is generating, and see if they'll accommodate me.

  • @wolframdonat, interesting, I didn't know the Holograms app required an internet connection.

    If you can browse the internet in Edge on you device, can you also browse in the store?

    Does the Settings -> Network and Internet -> Advanced options show you a valid IP address? If you've enabled Developer mode and the Device Portal (Settings -> Update & Security -> For developers), can you connect (from your desktop) to the device portal?

    Is the PC you'll be building and deploying from on the same network as your device (Guest)? If not, it seems unlikely to me that it will be able to route to your device's IP address anyway.
