Hi All,
I use a RedHat7.1 Linux system in a Windows NT LAN. The NT server runs MS Proxy Server 2.0 and it offers HTTP, FTP and Telnet services but no Socks. All the computers in the LAN. must access Internet webs via the proxy server. In Windows2000 I can browse the Internet with IE through the proxy server but I fail again and again when I try Mozill or Netscape or Konqueror in Linux even after correctly filling the informations such as IP address and Port number of the proxy server. Take Netscape for example, at Edit-->Preference-->Advanced-->Proxies, I fill the IP of the proxy server 192.168.167.3 (inner IP in the LAN.) and Port 80 just like those in Windows. But when I give a URL to Netscape there is no response for a long time. It is said that if your proxy server is a MS Proxy Server you can access the Internet only in Windows environment only with IE because there is no Client of MS Proxy Server for Linux. Is that the truth? Please do me a favour and any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

If that's the case, I'm disappointed. Sounds scarier than .NET and SmartTags since this appears to be already in place. "Grab the points of access, deny all but MS. Grab the browsers redirect to our points of choice."

Of course this just could be your sysadmin's choice to limit client access. They can because it's their network.

Gotta shut down. Lights flickering and all UPSs are on the server farm.

Good lucj.

I'm the sys adm and I HAVE to use windoze 2k+proxy 2.0. I have the same problem. I've read the proxy manual and I have no clue where to change / find the config to allow non ie5 clients to access the internet. Nor can I access the internet on a win pc with netscape.I can recive email on my linux pc, so the network config is good. The unix servers cannot access the internet either. Please help. I don't want to end up in a windoze world.

no socks, is probably a restriction that u'r admin has applied as ms proxy 2 does have a socks service.

i have no idea why this is so. the webproxy on the proxy server supports the standard http and ftp ONLY. the telnet service comes from socks for non m$ clients and winsock service for ms$ clients. it sounds more like a name resolution problem to me. the other issue if u'r on adsl could be the MTU problem on u'r linux clients. try the following if u'r upstream connection problem is adsl:

ifconfig eth0 or eth1 MTU 1454 u can also add this line to u'r rc.local.

unfortunately proxy server does not allow pings from the inside lan.

not true. as mentioned above u need the socks service enabled on the proxy for non m$ clients and only for protocols like smtp or pop3 or telnet etc....

http & ftp including https r supported by default for all clients no special config. required.

try this also:

in u'r /etc/hosts add the ip and name of the proxy server and then in u'r proxy settings add the name & the CORRECT PORT. (usually 80)
