Google Drive Issue in Moodle 2.6.


I am having difficulties in using Google Drive with my Moodle 2  (Moodle 2.6.2+ (Build: 20140403)Version 2013111802.04) - I have set up Google Drive in repositories and correctly entered the client ID and secret from the Google API console.

Whenever I try and connect to Google Drive I get this error:

Exception - HTTP Error: (0) Received HTTP code 500 from proxy after CONNECT

Has anyone seen this before?  I'm going slowly mad!

Kind regards
