Netscape Navigator & proxy servers
Posted on 2000-05-02
We use a a proxy server to access the internet over a NT 4 network. 99% of users use IE 5. We have 1 user (using Win 98) who is sort of the webmaster who wants to use both IE 5 & Netscape Navigator to make sure web pages are viewable with both browsers. He can connect with IE 5 with no problems. The problem is with Netscape. When he tries to load it, he eventually gets an error "Server is not responding. The server could be down or not responding". When he tries to go to IE then, he's lost all the proxy setings & must reset them. The weird part is that I, as a domain admin, can run Netscape on his PC without any errors & the IE settings do not change. At least not until he logs on, then their lost. I also have Netscape loaded on my PC (also running Win 98) & it runs fine. We have compared the settings on both & they're identical. Any one have any ideas? Making this person a domain admin is not an option. I'd appreciate any input anyone can give.
P.S. This is my first post to this so if I haven't followed protocol on something, please let me know.
