sorry no newsgroups on the specific subject Proxy, but you can try this following groups :

comp.security.firewalls
comp.os.ms-windows.networking.misc
comp.os.ms-windows.nt.admin.networking

  You can also try related subject on comp.os.ms-windows.*

You can try to ask question here on the
NT Networking Topic Area

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.

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 ?

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 ils.microsoft.com, the default server for NetMeeting.

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...?

OK, please let me know how it goes.

Commented:
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.
