nothing works but http


hi ,,

am using linux RH8.0 on a LAN .. the pc who is supposed to act as a internet sharing server is ( please don't laugh) winME, i use PROXY+ for internet sharing ..

the problem is i can't figure out how to use any service other than browsing the web using linux .. can't use the IRC client .. can't use messenger .. no https .. no ftp .. no nothing ..

i used many internet sharing programs .. they all didn't allow me to do any thing than browsing! i played alot with the configurations and settings with no luck ..

all computers in this LAN have the same problem .. but all of them could stand using http only .. but i need ftp and others to use with my redhat 8.0

any ideas?

thanks in advance

They seem to have a good range of support on their website.
Most protocols supported, so it may just need a bit of tweaking to set the mapped links...

since it's a proxy server you will need to configure your browser for the proxy.

In Mozilla it in Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Proxies

hi .. well i figured out how to run many things from the manual .. i can run IRC and use hotmail.com and browse FTP sites ...

what i didn't figure out is using the msn messenger, ssh and the secure file transfer that comes with ssh .. i think the common thing between them is the SOCKS that doesn't want to run !

thanks

This came from their website... http://www.proxyplus.cz/faq/articles/EN/art00606.htm

I seriously doubt if anyone here has used this software or upgraded to Linux from it, hence the general silence from here...
