I love using Ubuntu.

However I have a Windows XP desktop at work. I work alot between home and the office. It would be great not to have to use Dropbox instead of U1 to sync my work.

U1 installs fine but whenever I try log in I get this error: enter image description here

I checked with the IT department and there are no proxies. So I have no idea why it does this nor how to fix it.

Please help?
