Can't access proxy server

Q: Can't access proxy server

Having trouble staying online.

Preferred Solution: Can't access proxy server

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My setup is well wired up, no question there. I'm (trying to)install Proxy Server 2.0 on NT4 Server (to which I added service pack 4 & Option Pack 4). The server has two NIC's, one to the LAN and one to the WAN. The hardware (router, hub, cables) works, that's for sure. I got my DNS addresses all written out, both NIC's configured, no WINS server, backlog of addresses entered from to 254... The Internet connection does work, the DHCP is in the router, the NIC on the inside gets its IP adress no problem upon booting, the other one I assigned one to it... I don't get it, and this is just not getting done.
Thank you

A:Proxy server can't access internet

What is the error message when you try to ping a site on the WAN? Are the DNS servers internal or external, and, if external, can you ping them by numeric address? Can you run a traceroute anywhere? Can you ping the addie of the NIC-WAN card? It sounds like you may well have tried these, but it certainly helps for us to know what you have and haven't done so we can help ya. Let us know!

i am unable to access the Internet without the use of a proxy server(spotflux).
When I try to do so, the browser gives the following error DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_CONFIG or says that the network has been changed.
I've tried resetting the router, rebooting the computer etc. but that doesn't seem to work.
I've also ran malware bytes but that didnt fix the problem either.
Any help would be appreciated

I need some expertise "know how" in this matter. I have an office in location A and another office in location B.
A is protected by Firewall-1 Checkpoint and running Exchange 5.5 mail system. Point B is using Proxy Server 1.1 and Exchange 5.5.
Office A is the HQ and Office B is the branch. I need to sync the Exchange for these 2 offices. How do I go about doing it?
I intend to use only VPN remote client access to login users from Location B to Location A. By doing so, I dun think I sync my Exchange on both end but at least I can control those those login in via VPN.
Ideas/advices much appreciated.

I appear to be the victim of some piece of malware or virus that has added a proxy server setting that I am unable to get rid of. The main symptoms are that I am unable to change my proxy server settings in Windows 10. It appears to use this setting http=;. The result of this is that I am unable to do searches in the omnibar of Google Chrome (just takes me to a blank page) and I can't visit certain webpages, also if I am able to do a Google search the "Search Tools" button is missing.
I looked around on the internet and have tried a few fixes, I've deleted or changed the registry entries mentioned in Philip Turner's reply here: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/446898-can-t-disable-proxy-in-ie10?page=1
I also changed the entry mentioned here: https://fixedit.itxpress.biz/2014/10/08/unable-to-disable-windows-proxy-setting/
Making these changes allowed me to change the proxy server settings and once I change "Automatically detect settings" to on and "Use a a proxy server" to off then the issue is fixed and everything behaves normally. 
The problem is, once I restart my computer the settings revert back and are again unable to be changed unless I delete/change all the above registry entries again. I'm pretty sure that whatever did this is still on my computer somewhere and I need some help finding and eliminating it. Either that, or there is still some hidden registry entry that I am unable to find.

Hello! I am my company's Network Administrator, but I am not very familiar with Proxy-Server (Microsoft, V1.1) which we use as a "firewall". I've been fooling around with it a bit, but here is all I want to do:
I (the admin) would like full Internet Access. We don't block sites or IP's, but I can't connect to things like (here's an example) http://www.exite.com/games )
I can connect, but when the java applet attempts to load, it says it cannot connect.

Same for applications like Napster, or other programs like that where you have to get a connection to the internet to run it.

(Now, don't think I sit around playing games at work and downloading stuff- I need to do some on-line classes for my accounting software and the same thing keeps happening, but I thought I would use a familiar example or two.)

I am using Microsoft Proxy Server V 1.1 on an NT server and a Windows 98 client machine. I connect through a proxy server setting (company name, port 80). I am using a cable modem, which is run directly into the server.
I tried going into the security settings and granting myself full permission, but it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas??

I forgot to say- I also cannot connect through Front Page, which I need to use to edit my company website.

I would like to ask the community of these Forums for help to set my Desktop computer running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit to access chat programs that I have dowloaded from the Web and have installed on my PC.
My browser is Firefox 3.6.9 but i am unsure if the browser is involved in this.

Anyways, I do get in my e-mail a fresh daily list of free proxies to use to connect to the web, so given that I first have to open the program from icons that i already have on my Desktop ...
does anyone know how to set things so when I open them they would show -to anyone who wants to monitor(chat users and server owners on the other end)- the IP, geographic location and/or name of Internet Service Provider of the Proxy address itself and not MY OWN IP, location and ISP (as it happens now without the use of a proxy)?

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.
Has anyone come across this issue?

I have myself a win2k server that is connected to the internet using a cable modem connected using a ethernet net card.
I also have a 98 machine networked to the server using another ethernet net card in a workgroup
I want to use the server as a proxy server so i can access the internet from the 98 machine
i have tried a few diffrent things to get this working but usually end up losing all communication with the 98 pc
from what i can gather it involves setting up tings with DNS, and sharing the connection to the internet, but i am not getting to far at the mo.

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to explain what a proxy server is and why I should be bothered to "enable" mine. Something which appears I have done without knowing why. I think I ran into the suggestion somewhere in my computer travels.

I would appreciate it.



A:Proxy Server?

A proxy server is a program that acts as an intermediary between computers on your LAN and computers on the Internet. Proxy servers often have a cache built in to make web surfing faster. Some proxy servers also allow the filtering of web content or domains. Additionally, almost all proxy servers support logging.

Just like other internet connection sharing technologies, only one internet connection or internet IP address is needed to serve internet data to all of the workstations on your home network.

Workstations on your home network must request data (like web pages) from the proxy server to access the internet. The proxy server then fetches the internet data, checks it’s filters, and returns it to the workstation that requested it. Because a proxy server does all of the data requesting, each workstation must be configured to make all internet requests from the proxy server - not the internet. Sometimes software does not allow this sort of configuration and can not be used with proxy servers.

Since proxy servers are not a ‘transparent’ connection sharing technology, configuring a proxy server for more than basic web, ftp, news and mail functionality can be challenging for a beginner.

Hey there,

I am using Windowns XP, and I have discovered I have a proxy server, and I don't ever recall asking to have a proxy server, I have a single computer at home, no network. So the proxy server must be web-based, I sort of know what it is. But it's been interfering with trying to set up Mozilla (which I've given up on). I'd like to know how I disconnect the proxy server, or where the controls are.

Well, i wasn't having this issue before but I am now and I don't know why, but I can't do certain things on the internet, such as signing into my yahoo messenger or getting on my myspace account. When I troubleshoot it always comes up with something to do with my HTTP connection or my proxy server. Yahoo messenger told me to go into my Internet Options>Connections>LAN Settings and then to check the box saying 'use a proxy server for your LAN' and then click on advanced and verify my address and port. But there is nothing in any of those boxes. I have not messed with or changed any settings lately but it just started doing this. Can someone please give me step by step easy instructions on how to fix this? I would be so very thankful.

I am currently studying in Germany and am living in student housing. You have normal internet connectivity unless you use download over 10 GB of stuff, they then shut off your internet. You can still use the internet using a proxy server provided here but I still cannot connect to Skype or anything else besides Firefox. Is there anything I can do? If it helps I have an early 2008 MacBook.

A:proxy server

In most cases you can configure your applications to use the proxy as well. You will have to find out what the Proxy IP address and Port is to input to the settings. Example: IP-><-Port You may have to ask your Technical Support people for that information.

For Skype:

SKYPE-->Tools-->Options--.Connections-->Automatic Proxy Detection-->(change)-->Save

Not sure if proxy servers are against the rules. I have been looking for a USA proxy server FOR AGES! I cant seem to find one that works. I'm using the switch proxy plug in for Mozilla Firefox.

If anyone knows any USA anonymous proxy servers that work please help me out. If proxy servers are against the rules then just ignore me or delete this please.

If i put this is the wrong forum (which i probably did) move it or delete it or tell me where to put it. I just thought seeming im using a Firefox plug in to use proxies it might as well be this one.

My access to Wizards 101, a MMORPG, is being blocked by the firewall at the local library. I tried to get a proxy server, even though I know nothing about them, but that is blocked too.

Right now, the Library is my only web access, but I have wireless access 24/7 as I live right across the street from it.

Does anyone know of any work around that will get me around that firewall?

A:Proxy Server Help

I just tested another game, it ran without a hitch. Is there a way to redirect a program from one port to another? whichever ports Toontown Online uses are not blocked, If I could make the other game use the same ports, the problem would be solved.

I have to go now, but I'll check replies tomorrow

I need help with proxy server settings, I can get on the internet with firefox and I can download with my bittorrent downloader, but IE and Chrome both tell me they can't connect to proxy server, I wouldn't mind this so much but firefox eats up so much memory that it seriously bogs down my admittedly already very slow old computer. Firefox frequently show a usage of 150,000 to 250,000 and has been as high as 400,000k on my task manager,  I don't remember ever seeing IE or Chrome using that much menory,
   I tried going to internet options / connections /Lan settings and unchecking the box for 'use a proxy server' I also downloaded Minitoolbox and ran it to reset IE proxy settings, I still can't get on with IE or Chrome.   Does anybody have any other suggestions how I can fix this issue?

Can anyone please advise?
Firstly what's a'Proxy Server'
I use Internet Explorer 8, my ISP is Virgin.
1. I had problems accessing a particular internet account, their staff advise the following action Tools>Internet Options>Connections>LAN settings Proxy Server tick box and gave me address to insert and a port number.
Problem solved.

2.Some time later I found that I could not access a secure part of my ISP's site, access to some other sites had also slowed. I found that reversing the above instructions gave me access to the secure access of my ISP's site but that the original problem still existed.

Do I now have to use a Proxy server every time I wish to access 1. or is there some way to set up that will accept both?

I'm seeking information on how to go about setting up a proxy server. Currently we deny internet access by machine. That works well if the employee at the machine has no legit reason to be on the internet but it doesn't help with employees that do need the internet just not all of it. Basically i'm interested in setting up something that can block by website. The router has this feature but only for four sites (really cheap router for now). Thanks for your assistance.


A:How to set up a proxy server

You simply install some proxy software on a machine and set up a firewall rule on the router that allows traffic only from the proxy machine. Configure all the clients to use the proxy.

Unless you have a fast connection and lots of clients, any old crap PC should be able to do the job.

Squid+Linux would be the most popular and logical choice, but there are other operating system and proxy suites that work just as well.
