Not sure whether Ive posted this in the right place but here goes.

We have set up a website which is hosted internally on a windows 2000 server.  When attempting to connect to the site through IE (all IE 6) the site can been seen fine if the proxy server settings are configured in the browser.  If not the site cannot be seen. A page cannot be displayed error is shown. some users can still browse the web however without going through proxy.  

In some circumstances we need users to hit the site without going through proxy (depending where they are based)  any ideas?  Is it a configuration issue on the web server?

Ive looked all over and am baffled!!

Is the IP on your web server interal, external or DMZ? If it is internal you should have no problems getting to it.  If it is external or DMZ, your proxy server might be set up to only allow traffic outside the LAN if it comes through itself.  This would cause your block.

 What type of Proxy are you running?

I also depends on how your Internal network is setup.  Are you "forcing" machines to the proxy via a policy or subnetting?  Is this only occuring on a single machine or machines in different subnets?

Hello ransoneb,

Yeah Ive answered the question.  The server is on the DMZ my theory is that only internal ip address allowed to access to the DMZ is the proxy server.  This applies to all sites on that server.  I look after the dept responsible for builidng and hosting the sites so was not sure of how the IP scheme was set up on our network.  This has definatley pointed me in the right direction.

Thanks
