Okay guys, My sister left for college and we bought her a brand new 15 inch powerbook, she gets there and the college has a web proxy. The install disk is pc only of course , so we call to get the proper settings, and of course no one in the IT department has an clue about a mac . Well, some guy comes by and sets up the proxy using internet explorer, so now the only application that can access the internet is internet explorer, not ichat or safari or mail. So I tell my sister to enter all the information in the proxy settings in system preferences. I've tried every proxy setting except FTP proxy and the automatic proxy configuration, and it will not work. I've been through it at least 30 to 40 times and I don't know what else to do. So I guess my question is, Am I doing something wrong? Could it be a problem with their proxy and if so, what could or would the problem be? I have the ip address for the proxy, I have the port number, and it requires a user name and password. We have entered all of that info and still no luck. Thank you for your time.
