Since we've been slow up at the office this past week <smile>...
I've been putting together a spare machine out of used parts to put
Linux on. My office has a Microsoft network with one NT server... which
acts as the firewall (using MS Proxy Server) between our LAN and the
Anyway... Linux install was no problem, and I can ping the NT
server. My main purpose for wanting to do this is to learn how to use
Samba... I've played around to the point where I can see the server's
browse list (I'll learn how to actually use and share resources
However... I have yet to figure out how to configure Netscape (or
KDE's browser, for that matter) to get past the MS Proxy Server firewall
to browse the internet. I have gone into Netscape's proxy settings and
put the server's IP address in for HTTP proxy, as well as SOCKS proxy
(I'm still a little fuzzy on what that one is, but I know that the
firewall supports it). Now when I try to browse somewhere a login and
password box pop up... but nothing I've tried works (I tried several
username and password combinations for accounts on the NT server).
Authentication keeps failing.
Am I correct in assuming that this authentication in question is
referring to having an acount on the NT machine, or perhaps something
else entirely? I was just hoping that someone out there reading this
has configured something similar before...
