I have almost the same problem on my laptop running SUSE 10.1. In my case I used a wired connection and can access the web via the proxy in Windows no problem. When I try to access via Firefox in SUSE I also get "Firefox is configured to use a Proxy server that can't be found".

I can browse my work network using Konquerer (once I turned off the SUSE firewall) and can see the proxy server. But when I click on it I get "file or folder smb://proxyname/ does not exist!

I have just tried your second option (using the IP address instead of proxy name) and it works for me, so I am happy!

As using the IP address definately works for me your problem may be the SUSE firewall, I have mine turned off.

I'm glad to have helped Vulpus

I still can't solve my problem though. However, the fact that you have now got it working makes me hopeful that I will too - eventually. My firewall is turned off, and neither Firefox or Konqueror will work, and so I am running out of ideas here. I think it must be our server at work, but what exactly I wonder???
