Hotmail Trouble


Hi,

I am using Fedora Core1

I can't access my hotmail account with the linux box

Hotmail.com opens alright but when i type in my username and password it says

loginnet.passport.com could not be found. Please check the name and try again

I connect to the internet through a proxy server and i know for sure that hotmail.com

has not been blocked by the server as i can access my hotmail account through a windows

box.

The problem only occurs while signing in to hotmail through a linux box

Also

contrib.redhat.com could not be found. Please check the name and try again

It's only a class of sites that don't open

Many of the times its when i try to download from certain sites like rpmfind.net

Which web broswer are you using?

Try it with Mozilla or Firefox and see if it works.

I am using both mozilla and firefox and both have the same problem

Even konquerer web browser is unable to open it

The problem is not with the browser

It is i guess with some settings (probably ftp settings)

i don't know exactly

Hi,

I figured out the problem

I hadn't specified the ftp and SSL proxy in my browser settings

Thanx neways
