Install the MSP Client, then you may use all of them. :-)

After you setup MSP 2.0, a directory shared called MSPCLNT automatically, run Setup in that shared directory then you get it.

I have same Proxy 2.0 on my NT network, and it works well. Follow the following steps and make sure you have done it.

1. Start Internet Service Manager.
2. Open the Winscok Proxy properties of your proxy server.
3. Click on the Permissions tab, make sure you have unselected  the Eable Access Control, Or, just enable this checkbox and add users wtih Unlimited Access. This will allow all the protocols will be proxied.
4. Open the Socks Proxy properties of your proxy server
5. Click on the Permissions tab, make sure you have add a line that permit from ALL source to ALL destination with ALL ports.

Hope this helps.

OK looks good, but when I use netmeeting, it seems that we are not accessible from the other side.  I can see the other people, but I can't communicate with them

I'm new at Proxy, is this save ?
bbaoIT ConsultantCommented:
Yes, proxy is like a firewall, so the other sides cannot see you directly. Even so, you still can communicate with others via proxy and its client program.

You must logon to an Internet Locator Server (ILS), for example, it is, the default server for NetMeeting.

bbaoIT ConsultantCommented:
You mean: you can call and communicate with other guys, but other guys cannot call back to you? If the connection is established, no problem to chat, talk and share apps...?

bbaoIT ConsultantCommented:
OK, please let me know how it goes.
When using newsgroups or netmeeting a hostname is required.  You need to make sure you have references to DNS in your network settings.  You can test this problem by pinging the hostname and getting the related IP.  Input that IP into what ever application you are using and see what happens.  If the aps work than DNS is not set up correctly on your DNS server or you as a client do not have access to the DNS reverse lookup tables.
