Hi Folks,

We are running our own private lan within a Corporate lan and need to use the MS Proxy Client to connect
to our mailserver that is run by our domain host. (we are not running an exchange server) we use Routing
and RAS to provide internet to our workstations but  After installing SP1 for windows server 2003 on our server
the connection of the programms that use MS Proxy Client keep beeing terminated. Firefox and IE work just fine.

How can we resolve this problem ?

What client are you referring to?  You mention RRAS gives you Internet access, but MS Proxy is (in itself) a firewall that doesn't run on Windows 2003 Server.

Can you provide a little more information?

Well we get our internet from an other network (corporate), we can surf the internet just fine with it, but if we want
to use outlook for example, we need to install 'MS Proxy Client 2.0'. Our server is connected to the corporate lan and
provides our other workstations with internet. but we still need to use the MS proxy Client if we want to use outlook.

Now after installing SP1 on our windows 2003 server, the connection of the programms using MS Proxy Client keep
beening terminated by.. i think our server. Today i also noticed that one of our workstations cant connect to our
server for the use of Mysql, so i dont think its a MS Proxy Client problem alone.. looks like SP1 Installed some kind
of firewall whitch disconnects more that we would like..

if any specific information is needed please tell us and will try to provide it, we aint no experts ourself in this matter.

Event ID: 7055

Service Pack 1 for Server 2003 now has a firewall.  Make certain this is not enabled.

It might not be exact, but you can try to add this key and see if it works.

I am continuing to look.
