Wingate ping yahoo.com

I am using a registered version of Wingate 3.02 Pro.  Everything appears fine on my server computer, I can connect to the internet and the client computer through network neighborhood.  When Wingate is installed, I should be able to see the internet, but I can't.  I have pinged the server, and that works fine.  I tried pinging yahoo.com, with no luck.  THis implies that there is a problem with internet connection between the server and the client, but that's as far as I can get.  I have configured everything according to wingate's information, using designated ip addresses on my network.  I am running Windows 98 first release on both computers.  Any help would be appreciated.

THanks in Advance

Edited text of question.
Make sure your proxy address settings in your browser are set to the server computer's name & not it's IP#. For example, say you have COMP1 (which is the server computer, IP# and COMP2 (client computer, IP# Using IE5, in Tools>Internet Options>Connection tab>LAN Settings>Advanced, the HTTP entry should read COMP1 on port 80 (default port), not I spent days trying to figure this out <G>
WinGate is a proxy server and doesn't pass ICMP (i.e. ping) traffic between the local intranet and the internet sides.  If you want or need to do this, you'll have to use a tool that does network address translation (NAT) or IP masquerading.
