setting up a network to a proxy server (Norton, Windows 7)

Q: setting up a network to a proxy server (Norton, Windows 7)

Hello. I connect via wireless router dsl (comcast), but I want to route through a proxy server.I have read articles/posts in and outside of this forum, but it's not working.After updating Norton with the http address/port# (settings-admin settings-configure network proxy settings-use a proxy server for http connections) the 'apply' button isn't active, and the change doesn't take effect.If I just make the change in 'internet options' from the IE toolbar, then I lose all internet connection.What else do I need to change/do differently, in order for the changes to be accepted?Thanks.

Preferred Solution: setting up a network to a proxy server (Norton, Windows 7)

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.)


I have a Windows 8.1 Laptop that keeps getting it's Use Proxy Server setting turned on in Internet Options.  I uncheck it, click OK, click Lan Settings and it's checked again.  I've run Rkill, Adwcleaner, JRT, Tdsskiller, and run a full Malwarebytes.  I am currently running a sfc /scannow, as I couldn't get gpedit.msc to load.  Any ideas?

i need help on setting up a proxy server for home, i just want to use 2 different internet clients, (dont ask why) lol. Anyways, how do you set one up using a browser like mozilla?

My Win8 Start Page apps stopped working - could not access internet. Then I noticed Dropbox couldn't get a "secure connection". But Firefox browser and my email client had no problem with the internet. After hunting around a bit, I discovered that Proxy Server was checked in the LAN Settings of Internet Options-Connections tab. I turned it off and all was well, but it came back on the next boot. I can't find anything suspicious in my autostarted programs and the built-in MS security software isn't complaining about anything.

Anybody have any ideas? I'm fresh out of things to try. Meanwhile I keep resetting the Proxy check box whenever I have to re-boot.

A:Something is setting proxy server

If you haven't tried using System Restore yet, it's pretty handy for this sort of trouble.

From the Windows 8 Start Screen, type Recovery, then click Settings, then click Recovery, and then select Open System Restore. Choose a restore point from before your proxy settings started reinventing themselves.

Best of luck

Hello, I use a web accelerator called ExpressLink. When I connect to the Internet the proxy server setting is getting turned on automatically even though
it is not necessary when using the accelerator. If I disable the proxy server setting, it usually gets turned on again. I do not have any ISP software
installed. I have tried setting my connection to "Never dial a connection." but as soon as the accelerator starts the proxy server setting turns on. How do I keep this from happening? I am using Windows XP Home.

A:Disabling the Proxy Server Setting

The accelerator IS the proxy. The proxy settings probably look like "localhost:8080" or something like that, right? If that's the case, you would need to disable the accelerator, which is probably not something you want to do anyway, so you will need to leave the proxy settings enabled.

I have Squid installed on a Linux box running OpenSuSE 10.3. Does anyone know of a guide for configuring it for public access. So far it works fine from inside my internal network.

Does anyone know of any other proxy server programs for linux? Thanks.

A:Setting up a public proxy server

Hum.. Why are you doing this? You do realise that you will not be able to keep this proxy "secret" (even if you use non-default ports)? There are literally thousands of machines out there doing port scans and looking for open proxies just like yours. Once found, your machine becomes a conduit for everything that needs to be hidden from law enforcement officials. (And you will be the one questioned about all that child porn, hacking attempts and spam.) You should be prepared to keep throrough logs of everything and have a fast internet connection.

Anyway, first you should find out whether it is your firewall or Squid itself that is blocking access from the internet.

For all the Squid documentation you would ever want, try the totally unthinkable www.squid.org

Hi all

We have just installed Websense Software for Internet Filtering. We now want to point all our 250+ PCs to the Proxy Server. Rather than doing this individually on each PC, I understand this can be done via Group Policy (GP). I have identified that in the UserConfig, under Windows Settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\connection you can select Proxy Settings. Here I enable Proxy, set the Proxy IP and to use the same proxy for all addresses.
On saving and assigning the GPO to the workstation, it fails to apply the settings. However, if you manually set the options under the Tools\Connections Tab within IE6 it works fine.

We are running Server 2003 with XP Workstaions (Sp2) with IE6. All fully patched.

Anyone got any ideas!!!!!


A:Proxy Server setting via Group Policy

Since you are making the change apply to users....no workstations

I have strange issue with Windows 8.1 x64 Pro with Media Center. Since it was upgraded from 8, there have been issues with Software Store. Despite internet connection working fine with Firefox and other applications, Store would not connect to the internet. After long investigation I found out that Proxy server setting in Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings must be disabled in order to get Store working again. For some reason proxy server only stays disabled for the current session, which means when the windows is rebooted it comes back enabled again. My question is how to make it stay permanently disabled, as I don't use any proxy. Thanks.

Hey guys,

I've been digging through forums and sites for the past couple months now trying to find a way to help me turn my home PC into a proxy server so I may use Pandora Radio on my iPhone over public WIFI at work. Recently our corporate offices upgraded their network and in turn added a firewall which blocks many common external sites, one of which included Pandora.

I have found a temporary workaround by way of using Hotspot Shield's free VPN services, but I would like to create my own proxy server at home instead so I can avoid the constant timeouts/disconnects involved with the free service.

So far I've set up my PC to use a static IP on the network, and forwarded port 1723 to that address. I've also enabled incoming connections under adapter settings, but it just seems like I'm missing something big here. I am unable to make a connection to my home PC from my iPhone over WAN, and even if I was able to I'm not sure how to enable internet connection sharing over that connection.

Is what I would like to do at all possible or feasible? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have noticed that this service is taking a lot of memory.
As far as I know all it does is a allow computers on a LAN connect to the internet simultaneously. If so then I donít need it.

I tried disabling it but then I couldnít browse the web.
Could this be because of Nortonís ad-blocking or spam protection or something not critical because I want this service disabled?

These are the Nortonís Services I have enabled ATM:

Network Drivers Service
Network Proxy Service
Symantec Event Manager
Symantec Core LC
Symantec Settings Manager

Are any of them NOT Critical, meaning I can disable them?

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.

I hope I am in the right area here as I believe this is a Norton problem
At random times I get the following message while running M$ internet explorer.
"Common client network proxy server has encountered a problem and needs to close" it then apologizes for the inconvenience. I did have this problem a few months ago and I was directed to uncheck the box that states "Use a proxy server for this connection" (Tools - Internet options - connections - settings) I did this and the problem stopped, but now it is back and the box is still unchecked. I cannot find anything else that seems to sort the problem.

When looking at the information that is sent to Microsoft I have the following information.

Error Signature
OFFSET 0000159b

Files included in the report back to M$


These files I believe are associated with Norton.
If anyone could give me some advice I would be grateful as it is driving me potty because you have to close down after it occurs.

What I want to do is set up and connect a server at home into my home network consisting of two laptops (vista) and with two other people able to get access to the server from two offices in different parts of the country.
The server will be mostly used for storage, transferring files between computers and working on various files.
I have a domain name but have never used it, so if itís possible Iíd like to use it so we all have access via the internet to work on the files on the server.
Can anyone help me get started with whatís involved on how to set this up?
Secondly, if itís possible (and maybe in the future) would be to to set up a web page.
Would this be possible i.e. have a web page and a secure file server for our use
only using the domain name.

Thanks in advance for any help.

As my final project for the year i am setting up a server that we will eventually move all our computers on to. I am using a poweredge 2900 as a server with windows server 2008 installed. As of now i have 2 computers connected to the domain which they can log on to.

- what i need help with
- How do i give all users access to programs?
- Each student needs to have access to her own drive through the server not locally.
The client computers are connected to a switch using dhcp.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm quite sure your instructor/teacher did not intend for anybody but you to do the final project for the year and nobody else.

Hi Guys

Need some advice regards the above

I want to set up a small test server/network to increase my knowledge of
a) planning and building/deploying a network
b) Active directory and applying group policies

Want I want to know if what do I need?

I was thinkning I need 2 desktops,
1 to run server 2003 and AD
1 to act as a Domain Controller (does this need to be server 2003 as well?)

A swith or Hub
3-4 PC's to join to the Network/Domain as Test PC's

The PC's won't accessing be the Internet or be in a live enviroment so I don't need a Firewall

I have all of the above already

Have I missed anything


A:Solved: Setting up a Small Test Network/Domain on Server 2003

well, by default if a server is a domain controller then it has active directory installed. So yes BOTH servers will be server 2003. In an enviroment that small, only 1 dc is required

I recently found the PastaLeads PastaQuote adware on my Windows 8 Dell computer.  After following the BleepingComputer "Remove the PastaLeads and PastaQuotes Adware" article, I feel that it was removed.  But now the Windows 8.1 PC is unable to surf the web due to the unchangeable Proxy Server settings.  The message when using IE or Chrome is to check your proxy setting  The Internet Options Connection settings are incorrectly set to use a proxy server.  But changing them to not use a proxy server always gets reverted back.
Before going though a full rebuild of the PC, I wanted to explore the experts here.
I have tried many BleepingComputer utilities with no luck.  Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks -Sam
