I can't log in - (log includes 407 error from Proxy Server)

If you are unable to log in and you're sure your LexisNexis ID and password are correct then please contact us for help or refer your IT team to the information below:

Check the log file found in:
%appdata%\LexisNexis\LexisDraft\log
Open the file in a text editor (eg notepad) and scroll to the bottom. If you see the error:
 407 Proxy Authentication required
then it is likely that your firm or organisation has a proxy server which requires authentication. The settings will need to be configured in LexisDraft.
