this is the ip address of your own firewall, so you need to ask your network admin.

I'll give you an A, but your answer is wrong.  Since posting the question, I have figured out the answer.  The correct hostname for the compuserve proxy is "GATEWAY.COMPUSERVE.COM".

Thanks for the quick responce,

your question was wrong. from your question, I figured that you were behind a firewall in your company for examples and that you wanted access to compuserve. in this case, you would need to configure your client to use your company's proxy server (firewall). you need to reach the internet if your connection provider is compuserve.
