Connecting to a VPN (with a proxy based ISP)

Hi guys..

I'm trying to connect to a VPN through a school internet connection. The internet connection uses a proxy server to connect to the internet and I suspect that may be the cause of the problem.

I'm using the CHAPv2 to connect as I'm running a MAC OS X based server and that is the only one that's compatible with both mac and windows (Microsoft has made its own mods to its IPSEC implementation which renders it incompatible with other platforms).

Any suggestions on how to get it to work with the proxy server? I'm not sure if that's even possible but any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

You need to request access via the appropriate channels, proxy servers are there to limit/restrict access to the internet.
