Hello

I have an Ubuntu 11.04 machine that i am having problems connecting to the internet with.  Our network uses a proxy server and i have added a system wide proxy, with Authentication, into Ubuntu but i still can't access the internet.

Firefox is configured to use the system proxy but can't access the internet.  If i type an address in manually it says "Level 15 access required"

If i change firefox to input the proxy address manually, and then connect to the net it asks for my proxy credentials and lets me on the internet fine.

Am i missing something?  This is the second Ubuntu machine i have made and the first one worked fine with a system wide Network Proxy, just not this one.

I've attached screenshots for you to look at

Thanks
