    Hello! I am my company's Network Administrator, but I am not very familiar with Proxy-Server (Microsoft, V1.1) which we use as a "firewall". I've been fooling around with it a bit, but here is all I want to do:
    I (the admin) would like full Internet Access. We don't block sites or IP's, but I can't connect to things like (here's an example) http://www.exite.com/games )
    I can connect, but when the java applet attempts to load, it says it cannot connect.

    Same for applications like Napster, or other programs like that where you have to get a connection to the internet to run it.

    (Now, don't think I sit around playing games at work and downloading stuff- I need to do some on-line classes for my accounting software and the same thing keeps happening, but I thought I would use a familiar example or two.)

    I am using Microsoft Proxy Server V 1.1 on an NT server and a Windows 98 client machine. I connect through a proxy server setting (company name, port 80). I am using a cable modem, which is run directly into the server.
    I tried going into the security settings and granting myself full permission, but it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas??

    I forgot to say- I also cannot connect through Front Page, which I need to use to edit my company website. [​IMG]
