Your proxy server may not be allowing pings either.
Do you control the proxy and need to know how to permit icmp?

you can get a windows 95/98/nt version of nslookup here:

Google does reply to MY ICMP packets: what proxy server are you using?

You need ICS or NAT if you want to ping by the DNS name, proxy is not translating the private IP to public, but it's just getting the pages for you, NAT or ICS is translating your private IP in to public and this way your machine thinks that is on the internet, you will be able to ping from the PROXY but newer from the computer behind it.

Proxy is great beacause it gives you extra security and casch so it's faster for inside people to get lets say SP4 but it gives you a limitations if it comes to networking , if you are usting the application that is not proxy aware then you cant use it, eg. nslookup

IE is proxy aware becasue you can configure it to use the proxy, most of the aplication can be configured, like ICQ messanges etc. but some of the games can not be configured and then they will not work.

Glad I could help Take Care

www.vsnl.com probably isn't a name server

run winipcfg or ipconfig /all and use the name server noted there

A name server is an internet server that provides DNS services (Domain Name Service).

Your internet provider sends you the ip addresses of their DNS servers in the DHCP response that gives your computer, DSL or cable modem it's IP address.

You can see what name servers you are using by running WINIPCFG in windows 98.

If you have a router, it will usually be the address of the router.
