IE 5.0 and NT4 Workstation with SP6

By GaryG ·
Can't seem to find a cure for this "page cannot be displayed error" after dialing up and logging on to the internet. I would like to set up Winproxy on this station, but it would be useless like this. Suggestions?

Are your DNS entries set?? If you are dialing in to a server and THEN connecting to the internet you proxy server may not be set in IE5. Go to TOOLS-->INTERNET OPTIONS-->CONNECTIONS tab then LAN SETTINGS.

Good luck!

Gary,
I am not sure if you are connecting to work and using a proxy to access the internet. If you are, IE 5.x treats each connectiod seperately. Under Tools-->Internet Options-->Connection tab you will see all your DUN connections. Highlight the connection you are using to dialup and click the Settings... button just to the right. Enter your proxy information here.

Hope this helps

Ted

Sorry for the confusion. What we have here is a small lan with a file and print server and six workstations. Only one of the workstations has access to an acceptable outside line. The rest of the network consists of a call center that runs through an older pbx box and of course the lines are dedicated. The lone workstation will act as the proxy as soon as I can get to a home page after connecting to the internet. It auto dials, logs on, then connects. This is where the error ocurrs.

Gary, if you can dial out and connect to your ISP but can't browse, the first thing to check is whether it is a DNS problem. Have you double-checked your DUN TCP/IP settings? If you have your DUN connection set to use "server assigned" addresses for your primary and secondary DNS, this might be the problem. Maybe your ISP's server is not set to automatically assign the DNS server numbers to users when they dial up. A way to double check this is to dial out and log on manually (instead of letting IE dial automatically, just open DUN and dial manually), then check your IP configuration by opening a command prompt window and typing "ipconfig /all" (without the quotes). This will give you a list of all of your current TCP/IP settings including any DNS servers. If you don't see any DNS entries, then this is definitely why you can't browse. You will need to edit your DUN server IP settings and put in the actual IP numbers of your ISP's primary and secondary DNS servers (you may have tocontact your ISP for these if you don't already know them). Hope this helps!
