How to find proxy settings?


Hi,

How do I find what the proxy settings are on my network?

When I connect using windows and run explorer it works fine. All I have to do is check the automatically detect settings box. However when I use my redhat machine with netscape I don't have the same options of automatically detecting proxy settings and cannot use the internet.

Thank you.

Try (in NN3.x/NCC4.x): Edit, Preferences, Advanced, Proxies, Automatic.* there add <proxyaddr>:<port>/proxy.pac .
It should pick up the automatic conf. You can test the addr/file existance by just typing it in the browser.

Thanks for your reply. In my netscape browser in the automatic proxy configuration URL I put:

<proxyaddr>:<port>/proxy.pac

Unfortunately it came up with an error saying the automatic config file could not be loaded. Did I do it correctly?

Is there another way to find the auto config? Is there a little program that works like explorer's automatically detect settings?

Thanks.
