Cannot connect through a windows proxy server (FreeProxy)
I am running Fedora8 and I am am trying to connect to the internet through a Windows proxy server (FreeProxy). I configured the Network Proxy and the Network Device Control, as well as the settings in my browser but I am still unable to surf the internet. I also cannot update through yum.
When I use Firefox I get the error message: "Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections."
Can anyone help? Is the type of authentication on the proxy important?
PS the proxy is working fine with Windows.
