HTTP NetworkPlace through a proxy

HTTP NetworkPlace through a proxy

I am attempting to establish a HTTP NetworkPlace connection to an external  MS Internet Server  with Front Page 2000 extensions installed ? I understand this can be done..

This is through  my companies proxy which requires a password - the connection wizard prompts for the proxy password  - however does not accept it, and the connection is refused.

Using the Front Page 2000 publish HTTP function works fine, the process first requests the proxy password, then the password for the URL and the files a transferred.

Can anyone suggest why the Win2000 ?networkplace? isn?t accepting the proxy password?

Make sure the password encryption is set to be compatible between all machines. In can be plain text, NTLM or the newer win2k security.

What proxy is your company running ? If it is an NT4 server, you will need to change the win2k machines to be NT 4 compatible fro passwords.

I hope this helps !

A correction to the above ? The connection wizard prompts for and accepts the Proxy Password, then prompts for and accepts the password to the URL.

The  URL is then listed in ?networkplaces? (under ?my computer?). Only when I attempt to access the the URL does the proxy password  prompt appear, and the password is not accepted.

So I would be suprised if it was the way the password was being sent ? eg plain-text?

I appreciate your help..

1( Check the event and any other logs ( including proxy server  and HTTP server) for the errors. This should give you info regarding the error type and point you in the right direction.
Also see if there is a debugging option available to get more info in these logs.

I hope this helps !
