Internet Explorer 5.0

By abrahamkhan31 ·
Install Internet explorer 5.0 on window 2000.
Unable to connect through my company network.
I did basic troubleshooting that check lan settings, make sure the ip address is not conflicting, put a check mark on automatic proxy setting in connection. But still unable to connect to internet.
Please help ASAP.
Looking forward hearing from anybody.
Thanks

Make sure the DNS and/or wins setting are correct in the tcp\ip settings. If you can not connect to the internet from inside your company but can see the network, then check that the domain name is correct and that you manually input the DNS a/or wins server addresses or proxie settings. If you belonng to a group with no access to the internet remove yourself out of it.

We encountered a similar situation with WINPROXY and I basically had to go through all the settings one day with Winproxy Support. Basically he said that the IE 5 does not need to have the proxy settings checked in order to connect to the proxy server. The software in our case WINPROXY, controls this connection by defining the DNS settings within it. Additionally, the clients simply needed to have the DNS setting pointing to the Proxy Server correctly, and then the Default Gateway needed to point to the Proxy Server. We needed to do nothing to the WINS as this was already pointing to the PDC who was also controlling WINS. I'm assuming that other clients can connect through the Proxy Server with problem? Or is this the only machine connecting through it? Additionally there may be a setting on the Proxy Server to alow certain IP addresses to connect through it, it could be that your IP is not in that list, but I think if you start with the DNS setttings ie Station_Name as HOST and Domain.com for domain and the add the proxy IP address for DNS search order and Default Gateway, and uncheck the IE 5 connect through a proxy server. Hope this helps.
