Connect to Internet in Windows 8 Phone under College Proxy Server

Today I am writing on “How to configure your Windows8 Phone internet settings behind College Proxy Wall” or “How to connect to internet under college proxy in your Windows 8 Phones″. Internet Settings in “Lumia 920, Lumia820, Lumia720, Lumia520, Lumia1042, Lumia925,HTC”
Many of my friends have got Windows 8 phones. Phone is great but without internet smartphones are dead. They are just like budget phones except games. So internet is must. And you will regret more if you are in college and have proxy settings in your college. In laptop you can connect to internet through proxy setting and LDAP ID and password but there is no such facility in Windows 8 Phone. So I am bringing here a solution. How to Make Wi Fi HotSpot on Laptop to share internet
Step 1: Install CC Proxy and do the necessary setting. If you are running Window 8 on your PC then Visit here. Otherwise just install and open CC Proxy. Go to Option< Advanced< Cascading and do the setting.
Read about CC Proxy in Windows 8 PC.
Download CC Proxy


Change your ‘Internet Settings’ also. Go to Control Panel<<Internet Options<<Connections<<Lan Settings. Insert your PC IP Address and Port 808 (Taken from CCProxy).

Step 2: Check if CC Proxy is working fine or not. When you open your CC Proxy, you will find graph.

Step 3: Now make an access point in your PC. It is not necessary if you have Wi-Fi in your college. Just switch on your Phone’s wifi and connect to the server. How to Make Wi Fi HotSpot on Laptop to share internet

Step 4: Let me clarify that my PC is connected through LAN wire which is having an ip say 192.168.64.145 but I am connecting my phone with college wifi which gives ip 192.168.67.121. It will not affect your settings. Ok.

Step 5: So you have connected to wifi it will automitacally take some IP, subnet mask and gateway. Let it take. Switch on ‘Proxy’.

Step 6: Here give your PC ip (say 192.168.64.145) and port as your CC Proxy like I have port 808 in my CC Proxy. You too will have the same port.

Step 7: Save the setting. Here we go. Now connect to the internet. Cheers !

  1. WP8 doesnot support ad-hoc networks which is how one can setup a virtual access point in Windows 8. So this solution is valid only for college wi-fi,
