    I wonder if you could answer this question?
    When I go to my tools bar and go into connections, then I go into my settings I have http://www.cashe.freeserve.com Port 8080. In my Lab settings it is empty. I have been told that this is creating a conflict for me for playing multiplaying games and even just to go on your chat icon which I receive information about Port 8080. I wanted to delete it but I get a message saying" The settings for the proxy sever you've chosen to use blank. This prevents access to the internet. Do you want to turn off the proxy connection"?

    Could you advise me on this one because I don't want to turn the all things off, especially when it says it will prevent me access to the internet.

    Awaiting your reply with anticipation.

    Not sure I fully understand your question, particularly the reference to 7080 in the heading and then 8080 in the message?

    According to the IANA Ports list;http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers 8080 is just an alternate for port 80 which, I think, is the one that has to be open for web access.

    In the UK, freeserve is an ISP so it seems you may have a freeserve cache using 8080, perhaps for your online game playing or just a leftover from some previous installation. If you are with freeserve, try their website or helpline for assistance.

    Unfortunately, I don't know anything about 'Lab settings' or proxies (except that they conceal your IP address) but would guess that you would be right not to do anything to close 80 or 8080. Hopefully, somebody who knows more will be along soon.
