MS Proxy Server 2.0 Setup

By jerry ·
Tips on troubleshooting Proxy Server setup using DSL Line with multihomed server and all NT Clients, IE5.0 on clients. I've been through the book front to back many times with no luck. I keep getting HOST NOT FOUND error default html page issued by the proxy server. Any suggestion on additional tips for setting up Proxy Server besided MS documentation that comes on the CD.

MS Proxy Server 2.0 Setup

Are you sure your proxy is connected to the Internet? Can you access the web through IE on the proxy server or can you ping a site from the server. Clients can't ping through Proxy because it doesn't support ICMP, but you should be able to ping fromthe server. If not, you need to look at the configuration of your external NIC. Is the IP address correct, is DNS configured correctly? Is the gateway correct? The proxy can only have one gateway and that is your ISP, on the external network.

If it's only a client issue, is the LAT configured properly to identify all internal IPs? Have you installed the WinSock Proxy client on each workstation and is the IE connection configured on each client to use the proxy through your internal NIC's IP or if you aren't using TCP/IP internally, are the NETBIOS names being resolved?

Do the clients / users, have permissions granted? If you disable packet filters and security can you connect?

Assuming that you can connect to the server in the first place, I can't think of any other reason why this won't work.

The post above is very good. Make sure your LAT table identifies the IP's in your local network. Assuming you have connectivity, check one thing. Make sure in your IP properties, that only the external (public) NIC has a gateway. The internal side should be blank. We are all programmed to add default gateways, but in the case of a NT multi-homed box, only one gateway should exist and point to the more complex network. (the Internet in this case)
