Hello,

Situation:
1 NT4.0 server with 8 workstations. The NT server is connected to the internet through a Wingate(v2.xx) proxy-server.

Problem:
Netscape 3.04 on the NT4.0 server --> Java-script's are working fine!

Netscape 3.04 on any of the workstations --> Java-script's don't work at all.

We use the same configurations in both cases.

If you've got the answer you'll recieve an excellent rate!

If the javascripts uses any non-mapped ports it wont work simply because Wingate doesnt know what to do with the information. I encountered teh same problem at a client. Then we decided to loose wingate and use a 486DX25 running linux to handle the task, which it does most admirably.

Hi,

What do you mean with non-mapped ports?

Thanks

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Wingate only forwards certain ports, if a program/scrip uses a port that isnt mapped, it doesnt work. Wingate 2.0 has an "automapping" feature, that automatically maps ports as needed. However this feature is only available in the registered PRO version if i recall correctly. Then what you also must realise is that there are some programs/scripts that will never work via Wingate, because they incluse the source IP in the datagram, making return transmission impossible.

Check your dns configuration, your dns must be enabled in order to make use of java script.
