I am a complete linux newbie and am just trying a copy of mandrake 7.1 we've had lying around for ages.
I am installing on to an old machine at work and have connected it to our Windows 2000 network.
We have DSL Internet access shared using a free program called CC Proxy. I have set up the Linux box and installed the networking components and am successfully pinging the intended Proxy.
I have configured Netscape Navigator with the IP Addresses and the Port Numbers but when I try to access the Internet I get the message:
"A network error occurred while Netscape was receiving data
Try connecting again"
Any help would be most appreciated
Thanks very much
