Proxy Server Auto-dial Failure

By Jabulani ·
I have installed 2 different shareware proxy server software on my NT 4.0 Server SP5 and it all appears to work OK except when autodial kicks in it fails to authenticate
and just keep redialling.

The dialup connection will work happily if the proxy server is removed from the loop.

I am 100% sure that the Dial up information is correct as I do not have this problem running it on Windows 95 with a mirror installation.

The curious thing is that the same error occure with 2 unrelated Proxy Server software.

Any help will be appreciated

Proxy Server Auto-dial Failure

The consistency of (mis-) behavior of both Proxy Servers is interesting. I, too, tried several shareware programs a couple of years ago and had similar results. My conclusion was that the programmers were working on Win95 machines and didn't test their products on NT. Switching to MS Proxy Server 2.0 repaired the problem nicely.

If you don't want to spend the money, a cheap solution might be to install Win98 on one of the client machines, add the proxy server, then share the connection via ICS. I assume, though, that the proxy product will work as well on 98 as on Win95 - that might not be the case, but it's worth investigating...
