    Removing Proxy Servers

    Locked

    by mark.denny ·

    Hi,
    At the moment our organization internet access is handled be a couple of MS Proxy 2.0 servers with a virutal server and a DNS round robin to point the client machines to either one of the servers. What I would like to do is to remove the proxy servers from the equation e.g. have each machine browse the internet from each of their own ip’s rather than through the proxys. So can any one advise me the settings which I will need to make to the machine’s/servers in order to allow the browsing out. I know that I will have to remove the proxy client and the proxy settings from within IE but I really need to know what network settings I will need to change.

      1. Remove Proxy settings in IE and check if you have connectivity to Internet without Proxy Server. What problem you may experience at this point is DNS names resolution, since Proxy servers take care on that. Check if you PC’s can perform DNS resolution.

      2. If your connection denied (or dropped), you should check your firewall settings and enable outbound connectivity to HTTP and HTTPS ports. Also you should check if your PCs have public IP addresses or you have some kind of NAT (network address translation) performed by firewall/router.

      Good luck

        It was a problem with the DNS settings in the end. Once I had that setup correctly it all works fine.

        Thanks for all of the help.
