use sockscap in the win98 pc. give more details.
proxy server name!, there are many proxy servers out there which u can try, may b ur proxy server does not support all these things. Give as many details as u can n make it simple. sockscap32 from
click file setting
in sock server put the IP address of ur proxy servere e.g + the port number usually 1080

click socks 5
tick resolve names remotely.
press ok it only this simple.

now sockscap is opened drag n drop the software u need to connect to the internet like msn msg, outlook. remove all proxy settings on the said softwares make it as if it is communicating directly to the internet.

REcomendation use incredimail xe for ur mails it finds its setting automatically.

use jana server from just go to this site u will get all the info.

update ur browsers, n try different browsers

all the software mentioned are free.

I recommend u to upgrade from win98 to win2k its more stable + download sun java virtual machine.
THese little tips will improve ur connectivity + bare u from coming problem which u have not encoutered.

I took quite a lot of time 2 get these things work. I have some other problem which i am getting it very difficult to get someone to solve it coz as u move further u get less people in the same arena. My problem is I want to use voice n video in msn or yahoo messenger over a proxy can someone suggest me a good proxy server.
