Can't ping past MS Proxy Server 2.0

By Adriatico ·
Does anybody know if MS Proxy Server 2.0 will allow PCs on a LAN running it's proxy client to ping computers on the internet? I've fiddled heaps with proxy server's settings and have had no joy.

If anybody has this working, please tell me how?
Additionally, I am running RRAS. Don't know if this is the problem, though.

Thanks

Hi Adam: PC's on your LAN Cannot ping addresses on the Internet. This is Not allowed by The MSProxy Server. By Default it is the only machine that can see the Internet.

According to Microsoft, you cannot ping the internet from a proxy client. (see the following TechNet Query). If you find a way around this, I'd be very interested in the solution / work around.

1.02) Does PING work through Proxy server?

No, ping uses the ICMP protocol to communicate. Proxy only supports TCP and UDP
packets. Ping will resolve the DNS name but go no further as in the example
below:

\>ping www.microsoft.com

Pinging www.microsoft.com [207.68.137.36] with 32 bytes of data:

Thanks. I was hoping someone knew a way around it... guess I'll switch to a router or something.
