Question Use the Proxy

I have a proxy server in the lan , and run the MS Proxy Server 2.0!
How can i go through to the internet by the Proxy Server?
I setup the Netscape's proxy setting with input the ip address of the server but it seems not work! Could you help me?

( I use Mandark Linux 8.2 and Netscape 7.0 )

You'll find LINUX help here.
Help setting up a Micro$oft Server isn't here.

Added Sept 4

Try ports 80 or 81 or 8080.
These are the usual Proxy port numbers.

I think he is just trying to use linux m/c as a client and the server is running. So let me tell him what ever I know.

You need to give the port number also for the proxy server. And make sure if you can reach that port on the server from your client. ( just try telnet server_ip port ). If all these works, but you can't still use proxy, then you mostly need help from MS.

Hmm. You should be *clearer* on "but it seems not work!"

Anyway, if it's NTLM authentication, there was a thread on LQ about that, search for NTLM proxy (maybe it included something about Phyton scripting as well, can't remember it tho).
