I am a new bie at using Linux And its applications . I am having a problem in setting up the proxy settings for Linux . I am using Redhat 9 and i want to setup the proxy settings for Konqueror. I have a proxy server thro which i connect to the internet.
For the microsoft windows i just use the LAN settings option in the internet explorer options to use the IP 172.16.68.3 and the port as 8080 And whenever i open up the internet explorer a small window pop's up which ask for the user name and the password for authenticating the internet. But when i do the same thing in Konqueror and also i have tried out Opera for linux. No such pop up window appears. What could be the possible reason . The page is not loaded. Should i ask the network admin to configure any thing . I think that it uses the windows proxy server. Previously i used the port 7575 whicih was a symantec websecurity where the authentication page is actually on the explorer and not as a popup window and that used to work. But now we r to use the 8080 which gives out a popup windows for the authentication.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
