Updated Autodesk Bluestreak Desktop

Bluestreak Desktop now provides several methods of connection to support notifications through corporate firewalls and proxy servers.

  • TCP with XMPP - Default connection setting.
  • TCP with BOSH - Connects over port 80 which is usually enabled through firewalls. Try this if you are having difficulty connecting through a firewall.
  • Use HTTP Proxy Server - If you use a proxy server for connections outside a network, use this option to configure settings.

To configure these options, select Connection Settings from the pencil menu in Bluestreak Desktop.
