Sounds like MSproxy server. Doing a search on the net results in similar problems to yours. Some suggest enabling SOCKS support on the MSproxy server and a SOCKS client on your client box.
I don't have any experience with MS Proxy directly, other than eradicating the client on some Windows boxes that had it installed. It installs transparently and works regardless of your browser's proxy settings. Very annoying if you don't know it's on there. Is there another gateway that you can go out on? Or better yet, replace the the server! Quoting Robert Storey <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>: > I'm trying to set up a FreeBSD client machine for a school.
