Question

I'm sorry, all I do these days in Linux is firewalling and proxies, and I have no clue what you are asking. Could you please clarify your question. And if the address you are typing above is on your internal network and not the Internet, then there is no need for the xxx's.

Attempted answer: my squid proxy which is at 192.168.0.56 is called by its clients like this 192.168.0.56:3128 (addressort). Hope that helps..

What proxy are you using?

You also mentioned entering a username/password and domain. Do you mean NT domain?

In yast, advanced networking, proxy. It ask for the name of your proxy and gives an example like http:\\www.mypc.com:3128

I was wanting to make sure that putting xxx.xxx.xxx.2:80 would be a valid address.

It also ask for ftp server we have none.

It ask for domains to nopt use a proxy I put xxx.xxx.xxx.34
is that a valid response

then it says to put in user name and pasword if you are using the proxy that requires a user name and password. I am so I put in my username and password.

the ip's are not on an internal network. Thanx for the info the post above is a little lame sorry. I am sswapping between the two hd to post.

Ok, here's my answers to your questions...

Whilst I don't know yast, entering xxx.xxx.xxx.2:80 should do fine in the proxy settings section.

Forgive me if this sounds like an obvious question, but does the proxy you want to use require authentication? If it doesn't, then don't enter any details in that section.


Hope this helps.
