Proxy software and application errors
Posted on 2001-07-03
I running Netcruiser netproxy (the latest version - .1.3.57 I think) on my sister's machine (Win 98) in our basement. Some applications work fine and connect to the internet just fine (IE, Outlook express), but others fail to recognize it (ICQ, AIM, Morpheus, Direct Connect, Winamp, Mirc etc.). They all say that the proxy can not be reached, but i know it is running and that it works since I am surfing the internet right now using it. I have tried every setting possible but still nothing. The way it is supposed to work is the proxy server is simply her IP address followed by the port of the proxy server (as specified by the program 81 - e.g. 188.8.131.52:81). I use ATT @home to connect to the internet. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting all my apps to work? Something that does not involve getting another IP address from ATT? Any software reccomendations? NOT WINGATE. It doesn't work on our machines. Another program maybe? Anyone else have problems like these before? Please help.
