Web Proxy/Socks Proxy

By ian ·
When I reboot a WinNT SBS4.5 server the Web Proxy/Socks Proxy/and all other services within the Proxy MMC fail to start.
They fire right up when I right-click and choose 'start', but I want then to start automatically.
I checked the "Services" in the Control Panel and the only thing that looked like it might help was making the WWW Publishing Service "Automatic" ( I tried a manual start on this but it did not start the Proxy services).
All other Proxy related services are "Started Automatic"??

I have the same problem with NT4SP6a, Exchange 5.5SP4, IIS4.0 and Proxy 2.0 SP1.

After a reboot the Web Proxy and Internet Proxy services were both operational.
I assume that setting the WWW Publishing Service to Automatic (in Control Panel, Services) fixed this ??

I am having the same problem, help!

by touk In reply to have a lok at this

I have the same problem, but this time all the proxy service would come up on the second bootup. Once up, the proxy services would run for awhile then stop. I have to restart them almost every 8-10 minuites. I need help. I appreciate any help you can give me.

I also have this problem

I also have this problem with 2 customers i support. SBS 4.5, the proxy services stop every 8-10 minutes, and sometimes go longer without failure. Applying proxy service pack 1, NT SP6a, and the latest security hotfix has lessened the incidence, butnot cured the problem. Anyone with a successful fix, PLEASE let me know!

Problem with Proxy starting on reboot

by rjbenson In reply to Can you help me??

We've had similar problems with our SBS 4.5 system in the past.

If you look in the SBS newsgroup (microsoft.public.backoffice.smallbiz) though no one knows the reasons for it you'll see that it is pretty common and the one solution is to make sure that during a reboot you do not let anyone access the server until all services are started, this usually will result in the Proxy starting correctly.
