We have an application based on Java web start, JNLP it works fine when no proxy is set. when we set the proxy in firefox ( the same is taken up by javaws ) we get the below error:

Could not access HTTP invoker remote service at [http://host:7001/...service ]; nested exception is Unknown proxy type: HTTP

We are stuck here. Any pointers or suggestion would be highly appreciated.

I agree. Here's the link:
