Does the system that connects to the proxy server use DHCP? Have you tried a release / renew of the IP on this workstation. That can be done from a command prompt using the command IPCONFIG /RELEASE followed by the command IPCONFIG /RENEW. If that resolves it and is a common problem you might want to download this little utility from Microsft. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=00A9 74B4-0BFA-4065-8081-BBAEBF2A5CB6 (This link will probably break in email so you may have to copy and paste it into your browser) Spider http://web.tampabay.rr.com/spider1 http://spider1.blogspot.com/ http://erablog.net/blogs/Spider1/ -----Original Message----- From: 24hoursupport-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:24hoursupport-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of ywguo Sent: Saturday, July 03, 2004 10:09 AM To: 24hoursupport@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [24hoursupport] Help on proxy!
