Is there a way of finding my proxy server?
Posted on 2004-04-13
At work, we use the internet through a proxy server, which is just a IP address and port of 8080 in the proxy settings of Internet Explorer. Is there a way to find out what proxy server this is?
The main reason I ask is because I think they have blocked me using a particular website. All get when I try and visit it is
Network Error (tcp_error)
A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.
I know the error doesn't sound like it's blocked, but I think it is. So is there a way to test that it really is blocked? I can access it from other dialup connections/internet connections - so it does work. Also is there a way to test it to see if the proxy supports HTTP Tunnelling?
Please help. Thanks
