Proxy server issue

Q: Proxy server issue

Hey all, got a stumper that needs fresh ideas!

At work this afternoon our proxy server stopped providing internet and email access.

End users can't connect to their email because they get a POP3 error, one of the protocols that the proxy server provides. Same thing with their internet access - "proxy server is refusing connections".

The network itself is fine - I can ping every segment (every router, every hub, every switch) and the proxy server itself. The proxy can also be bypassed - allowing internet access. Not a feasible solution though.

The email services are all running. Both network cards are sending and receiving. The proxy server itself is connected to the internet. Email is being collected, run through our filters, and supposedly sent on its way. On the surface, everything seems to be fine....Yet no end user going through the proxy can get outside onto the internet or access the server's email portion.

Right now we're running a virus scan which will take hours to finish. Meanwhile, my shift ended and I went home - My manager can deal with it now.

I don't suspect it to be a virus or anything running in the background. Theres nothing fishy in the running processes and CPU and memory utilization appears normal. I was about to start powercycling network devices between the proxy and the rest of the network, but that seemed like a bad idea.

Preferred Solution: Proxy server issue

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.)

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?

A:Server 2012 R2 - Internet Explorer Proxy Server Issue

Hi Dicki,
First, please try to reset the Internet Explorer. Some plug-ins may affect the proxy.
If it doesn't work, please try to perform a network capture on the client.
Please check if the client send the http traffic to the proxy server at the correct port.
If the client has sent the http traffic to the proxy server, please check if there is any warning or error in the proxy server.

Check your proxy settings 127.0.0.1:49376.

I do not use a proxy server. If I go into LAN settings and deselect the proxy server and select Automatic Detect,  when I restart IE the settings go back to requiring a proxy server?!?!?

Morning. IDK if this is where I am suppose to post this. My laptop was FINE yesterday and then all of a sudden I wasn't able to connect to the internet. I rebooted it, i redid my wireless routers. Those are fine cause my phone can connect, and my husbands laptop can connect as well. Mine will not. It is asking for Proxy Authentication Proxy server 0.0.0.0:0 and then asking for username and PW, which i don't have either, its my HOME laptop. I tried the LAN setting and making sure the Proxy thing was unchecked it is... so now idk. Its not working. I read that I should uninstall IE and re install it, but I don't have internet. This is really frustrating. Can someone help?

Iam doing r& d on email headers,i want to trace an ip ad of the sender,so i change my firefox proxy server setting to 200.55.48.12 and port 8080 this is the proxy server ip ad, actual my public ip ad is 202.45.25.41.

But when i send an email ad from yahoo to gmail and when i check the email headers ,the ip ad of the sender is similar to my public ip ad even though i had change it to proxy server.

when we set our computer to proxy server and when we visit some website,the webserver see the proxy ip ad and not our real ip ad.

so then when i check the email headers it shows the real ip ad and not the proxy ip ad.

so what would be the reason.

A:proxy server issue

i have been caught in a scandal recently concerning all of this mess and what i learned is that whenever u send an email, it will ALWAYS show your public ip, meaning the ip that the isp has provided you with, and neeeeeever your browsers ip for security purposes. imagine if everyone could send an email using a randomized ip address in their explorer's settings, they would never be caught if they are harassing people by sendind emails!

Hi everyone.

Looking for some suggestions/recommendations...

We have one of our .NET web applications running in one of our clients proxy server environments. Our client has reported back to us that they seem to get "page can not be displayed" errors when they navigate through our web application. Please note that this does not happen to all users, just a few users and it appears to be intermittent.

We have tested this through our internal environment as well as from other external environments and we do not get this error. Furthermore, all of our other clients do not have this issue.

Our development team has released a patch to try and address this issue, but this one client seems to still get this error.

If any members in here who have experience with .NET and proxy servers can offer any suggestions/recommendations, that would be appreciated.

Thanks.

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=127.0.0.1:8080;. 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.

However, this is the first time working with anything dealing with proxy services. I think I am a little confused on the concept of a "proxy" service. I know its main goal is to block protocol content...mainly for web dealings and whatnot. However, Where is the proxy server supposed to sit on the network?

We only want to use this proxy server for 1 PC. The pc has 2 nic cards, but I do not know whether or not this PC has to be synched up with ADS, plugged into a switch in the network, and also plugged into our firewall?!??!

If it helps I have an early 2008 MacBook.
Thanks!
 

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->192.168.1.1:3128<-Port You may have to ask your Technical Support people for that information.

For Skype:

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

I hope this helps.

Hey guys,
just wondering how would you go about setting up a proxy server that users have to log in to, to monitor usage and cache common websites.
I have an old machine that I'd like to use for the job, just wondering how I would set it up.
Cheers

Much as I can live without Incredimail and it's alleged Spyware, it's bloated E:Mails and it's inefficiencies, even after the company has been repeatedly informed that they are lacking in the most basic of Message Rules, my wife and kids love it !!!
In case you don't know, the Message Rules do not allow you to check if the E:Mail is addressed to you, and if it is not, then to leave it on the server, so I constantly get E:Mails forwarded to Outlook Express from my kids that are for me, but they 'accidentally' downloaded "a few days ago" ... yeah, and the rest !!! ... Oh, I should point out that this happens when you have multiple E:Mail addresses under a single useried ... i.e. [email protected], [email protected] & [email protected] ... Incredimail cannot differentiate between these and will download them all if somebody presses the Send & Receive button !!!

An obvious and presumably easy upgrade of their Message Rules would be the most obvious and easiest way around this, I've asked them numerous times but they certainly haven't taken my advice on board as there has been a recent new release with no changes to Message Rules !!!

So, eventually, to my workaround ... does anybody know of any (decent/cheap/free) software that will sit between my PC and the E:Mail programs and perform a similar service to Outlook Express's rules ?!? I have found a few programs that perport to act as servers, but they are very complicated to set up & I'm still no... Read more

6) IncrediMail Problems (Part One)

Hi Fred, I'm a network administrator for a large Reservation in Minnesota. One of my users asked me if it would be all right to install a new E-mail client package called Incredimail, I checked out the http://www.incredimail.com website and noticed stellar recommendations from Cnet, ZDnet, and Tucows so I downloaded the demo to check it out. What I found in the user agreement for the software was pretty unbelievable, obviously the people who recommended this software didn't read it. The agreement itself is extremely long... but the attached excerpt from the agreement almost knocked me out of my chair:

Any confidential, secret or proprietary information or other material submitted or sent to IncrediMail, including without limitation via any Message sent by You through the Service, Site, or IncrediMail's physical mail and e-mail addresses, or in any other way, will be deemed to be not confidential or secret. By submitting or sending information or other material to IncrediMail or by posting information on any portion of the Service you (a) Warrant that you have all rights of any kind to the material and that to the best of your knowledge no other party has any rights to the material; and (b) Grant IncrediMail an un...

Currently I have a static ip address through my ISP and I would like to know how to change it to a dynamic one.

So far my understanding is that this can be achieved via a proxy server. Unfortunately I have no idea what this is or how it works. Is this some type of card that I put into a PCI slot, or an outside box that connects to the computer? If it will work on my system, do you recommend one over another?

First call your ISP and ask them if they have a proxy server you can access.

Recently Windows updated both my partner's and my laptop with 23 updates for Vista. Ever since those updates over the weekend my partner keeps on getting a proxy server window appear on his desktop asking for a password.

We have Virgin wireless broadband and changed over from 3 Broadband. I told my partner to uninstall 3 Broadband, which he has done but it still comes up with this window. We have gone into all the Internet connection windows and unticked any option for a proxy server and it still comes.

Is there anything we can do that we haven't tried yet?

Compused
 

A:Proxy server

Ok, this question is quite old, so I'm going to take a stab at it!

I'm assuming that since you have Virgin wireless and going from 3 broadband that you are in the UK. I have zero experience with anything in the UK as b/c I'm in the US. Nevertheless, I'm going to try and assist you the best I can.

I'd say uninstall all Virgin wireless & 3 Broadband software that is on the computer. IF the virgin wireless connection is a regular wireless router in your home, then just simply connect to the wifi network is shows when you use the built in wifi software for windows, enter the wireless password & you should be good to go. IF the virgin wireless connection is a USB adapter, then reinstall the software accordingly, run the program and it should connect. As for this proxy window popping up, I'm really not sure why it's doing that, is it a windows proxy window or a window from the virgin wireless software?! either way, take a screenshot & post back.

Also post back specs on the system in question, info on the type of wireless connection you have from virgin wireless (USB, PCMCIA, wifi hotspot device, etc.).

Hope this helps, take care!

Hello,

I'm hoping someone can help me please?

I'm using a high speed cable modem and Internet Explorer under XP. About a year ago, I learned how to use a Proxy Server. I just upgraded my cable to "high speed" and want to use a proxy server for increased privacy and security.

Using Internet Explorer, I went to the Tools Menu, Internet Options, Connections, LAN settings. Then checked the Proxy Server box and entered a proxy adress of: http://proxy and port of 8080.

Should I check the Bypass Proxy Server for Local Addresses box? Does that make any difference?

Can anyone please advise me what is likely going wrong? When I try to connect, I get one of those: "Cannot find server or DNS address" errors. I'd like to use a proxy server. What am I doing wrong?

I am trying to use the proxy server settings to limit user access to the internet. Going to Tools/Internet Options/Connections/LAN Settings - I set the address to loopback 127.0.0.1 and in the advanced options enter a list of exceptions, which is where users are allowed to go. With one exception (Google) each site displays unformated text with no images and the message "Error on Page"

Any ideas? Thanks.

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?
