Unhappy Internet on LAN


Dear Guys,
I have installed linux 7.2, I m facing some difficulty to connect internet on LAN. My cable operator is using Microsoft WinSock Proxy Version 2.0 in windows 2000 for internet sharing.

PROBLEM WITH NETSCAPE
When I put server IP 192.168.0.1 port 80 in proxy option, and put "WWW.YAHOO.COM" in add bar. A window appear "PROXY AUTHENTICATION REQUIRED FOR UNIDENTIFIED PROXY SERVER AT 192.168.0.1:80" I filled both user name & password which I usally use in win98 and xp. As I click OK, browser status bar was showing continuesly with blinking "CONNECTING 192.168.0.1:80 WAITING FOR REPLY" "CONNECTING WAITING FOR REPLY" but did not get any data from web site.

The same problem I faced in Linux 7.3.

Plz note I have installed Microsoft proxy client both in win98 and xp.

If u have any solution of the above plz reply as soon as possible.
regards,
Salim
Karachi, PK

what version of netscape are you using

there are many issues with things not working in different browser versions. ask your isp what browsers are supported.

also if it's using java you may need to install that as well.

How's you serach for new ISP going? I've never heard of an ISP using proxy servers?

Have you contacted their Teck Support?

Netscape 4.7x Edit | Preferences | Advances |Proxies |
Manual Proxy Configuration

Address to Proxy should be you ISP proxy address?
Again check with teck support for details.

Your 192.168. address should never leave you LAN.

Of course the reason for it to keep you from running you own web server

So the question is can "we" configure Proxy setting at the OS level? That's the question

The one I tried was a transparent proxy. You connected to the network device, and set your assigned ip. The browser would pullup a login page, no matter what address you had typed in.

After logging in, it worked normally. It was pretty darn fast to 150 KBytes +. And worked anywhere around town.
