Xamarin Live Player behind an HTTP proxy, VS 2017 15.4 Preview

I'm running Visual Studio behind a corporate HTTP proxy, and am unable to pair it with my Android device - I'm guessing the proxy is the issue here.

The connection test on the device works fine, so presumably the device is not the issue. I've tried the manual pair method too, but when I enter the code in VS, nothing happens. Literally nothing, not even an indication that it's trying to pair.

I don't see anything being blocked in my local FW logs.

I also installed Fiddler, but don't actually see Visual Studio sending anything when trying to pair.

Would appreciate some help!

    I just tried it while not connected to the corporate network, and I see my Windows machine connecting to on TCP port 8090 - most corporate proxies will only proxy traffic bound for ports 80 and 443 (HTTP and HTTPS) - it would be extremely useful if the Xamarin server port could be changed to be one of these instead.

    Visual Studio need to connect to the server first. So, to work, the company need to allow the static ip: ( )
