What ia a proxy server


A Proxy server holds web pages that you use often. It sits between you and the Internet. For proxy server settings have a look at Internet Explorer options, under connections. If you have no proxy server, then you can switch it off by unticking the "use proxy server" from there.

Cannot access my hotmail a/c comes up server not found


Servers provide information for websites, hold Web pages, protect other computers from infection, provide authentication services and hold large numbers of files. Servers also connect email systems together. The average Web surfer encounters many servers in a day without realizing it. The mention of servers only arises when things go wrong. For example if the Hotmail Mail Server is inaccessible the user will receive an error message that the server cannot be found.

Client-Server In standard network communication all computers fall into one of two categories: clients and servers. Servers are bigger computers with large storage capacity and fast processing power. A server centralizes services that enable applications running on client computers to have access to more resources than their own computer could handle. The client is the local computer, the one the user accesses. The local computer, the client, contacts a remote computer, the server, with a request for a service. If the server is available, it responds with the requested service or resource. b> Hotmail Hotmail uses several types of servers. The screen the user accesses is actually an email client. It lists delivered email and enables users to write new emails. Originally, this program was always resident on the user's computer. Hotmail revolutionized the provision of email services by making this interface available on a website. The website itself is hosted on a Web server. The chain of clients and servers in a simple email transaction with email can soon become complicated. The user, on a home computer, is sitting at the client. The client program is the Web browser. The Web browser contacts a Web server to get and display the Hotmail page. b> Hotmail Servers b> Although the Hotmail page is resident on a server, it is a mail client and is also called a Mail User Agent, or MUA. It sends all outbound emails to a server called a Mail Submissions Agent, or MSA. The MSA sends the email to a server called a Mail Exchange, or MX, which then forwards it to another server called a Mail Delivery Agent, where the email sits until the user commands the mail client to go and find any new emails. b> Missing Server b> The server that Hotmail reports it was not able to find could be the Mail Submissions Agent, the Mail Exchange, or the Mail Delivery Agent. If the message arise during the sending of an email, the likelihood is that it is the Mail Submissions Agent that could not be contacted. If the error message occurs when Hotmail goes to find new received emails, it is likely to be the Mail Delivery Agent that could not be contacted. In either case, the user's connection is with the Web server and not either of these servers. There is little that the user can do to fix this problem other than try again later.

Internet explorer http internal server error 500 help gave it a day still cant get online!!!


Error 500 to 504 are usually nothing to do with your system, they are errors created by the server you are trying to connect to.

Introduction
A server (not necessarily a Web server) is acting as a gateway or proxy to fulfil the request by the client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) to access the requested URL. This server did not receive a timely response from an upstream server it accessed to deal with your HTTP request.

I just cant get on any page on the internet it just says server not found


There are many reasons for this. There may be parental controls active on the system, or your computer may be struggling to connect to the internet. Check your Internet Explorer settings. Click Tools on the right hand corner, select Internet Options, click on the Connections tab. At the bottom of the connections tab it should say LAN Settings. Select LAN Settings and there should be three boxes with a check option. The last one should say something along the lines of "use a proxy server". If it is checked, uncheck it. I experienced something similar to what you were experiencing. It turns out that a computer virus disguised as an Antivirus software called Antivir Pro Solutions or some variation of that, prevented my computer from accessing any websites, and eventually prevented me from opening programs. That particular virus was able to change the proxy server settings to its very own proxy server, and once I got rid of the virus using a program called Malwarebytes (awesome& very reliable program btw), the Internet Explorer settings remained on a proxy server. All I did was unchecked it and the internet returned. If you have a legitimate Antivirus software such as Mcafee or Norton by Symantec, I suggest you run a scan before anything. Some security features such as CA Security are good for somethings, but not for others. I had CA Security when I caught the virus. If you have CA, I suggest you download Malwarebytes as a secondary precaution. Anyways, I hope it's not a virus. Good Luck!

Dell pc wont pick up internet


There are wide issues that may occur, with a issue with "dell pc wont pick up internet" is very general, so please be specific, however i went over most issue step by step, hope this help
Make sure you have the correct IP scheme for your network. This would include the:
IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS Servers
Click on start, run, type in cmd, The run IPCONFIG /ALL. A sample where a router is used is in the following graphic.
IP Address:
If you have a router, common examples would be:
192.168.0.x, 192.168.1.x or 10.0.0.x
If you are directly connect to your DSL or Cable Modem, you should have an IP address that would correspond to something from your ISP.
What you don't want to have is something like 169.254.x.x. This means you are not getting and IP address assigned and needs to be resolved first.
Subnet Mask:
Also make sure you have the correct Subnet Mask. Most commonly this would be 255.255.255.0
DNS Servers:
Make sure you have the correct DNS Servers.
Sometimes this is the IP address of your router, so it would be the same as the Gateway IP.
Sometimes (as in this example), it is the actual DNS servers used by the ISP.
Possible causes for not getting an IP address assigned are:
1. Defective cable, network card or port on the router. Make sure you are using all known working components.
2. Your router is not configured for DHCP (which would automatically be assigning IP addresses).
This and can be done from that same command prompt you used to run IPCONFIG
2. Try pinging the router's IP address
e.g. ping 192.168.1.1
If you get a reply, then your connection to the router is working.
If you don't get a reply, then you need to double check your network card, cable, port on the router. You might also see if any other computers on the network can do the same.

3. Try pinging an external site by IP address
e.g. ping 4.2.2.1
If you get a reply, then you have a connection to the Internet.
If you don't get a reply, there are several things you can try:
1. Double check that the router is connecting to the Internet. Typically you can access the router through your web browser and check it's status.
2. Take the power off your DSL/Cable modem and Router. Plug the modem back in a wait a minute or so. Plug the router back in and wait a minute or so. Then restart your computer.
3. WINSOCK Fix - It is possible that the WINSOCK Registry entries have gotten corrupted. This is getting to be a more common problem. See WINSOCK FIX for clean ones you can download

4. Try pinging an external site by Name
e.g. ping www.yahoo.com
If you get a reply, then you have a connection to the Internet and DNS is working
If you don't get a reply, there are several things you can try:
1. Double check your DNS entries
2. You many need to use the same DNS IP address that your ISP or Router is using.
3. On rare occasions your ISP has problems with their DNS servers. But that is rare in comparison to misconfigured computers.

If your PING tests work but you are having problems browsing sites on the Internet
1. If you could ping external sites by both IP address and Name, but cannot browse the web, likely your web browser is misconfigured.
2. Double check that you don't have an incorrect or not needed Proxy server assigned.
For the Internet Explorer - Tools / Internet Options / Connections tab / LAN settings button. Uncheck both Automatically detect settings and Use a proxy server for your LAN.

Internet connection problems


Troubleshooting Internet Connection Problems The purpose of this section is to give general tips
on troubleshooting your Internet Connection

While there are many possible configurations, I'll try and cover the most common ones.

Making Sure You Have Correct IP Information
Basic PING Tests
Browser Configuration

Making Sure You Have Correct IP Information 1. Make sure you have the correct IP scheme for your network. This would include the:
  • IP Address
  • Subnet Mask
  • Default Gateway
  • DNS Servers
2. There are a few ways you can see what IP addresses are being assigned.
But generally for:Win9x - Start / Run / command
Windows2000/XP/Vista - Start / Run / cmd
The run IPCONFIG /ALL. A sample where a router is used is in the following graphic.
ipconfig.jpg 3. IP Address:
If you have a router, common examples would be:
192.168.0.x, 192.168.1.x or 10.0.0.xIf you are directly connect to your DSL or Cable Modem, you should have an IP address that would correspond to something from your ISP.

Also make sure you have the correct Subnet Mask. Most commonly this would be 255.255.255.0 5. Default Gateway:
Make sure you have the correct Default Gateway IP address.
With a router, this is typically the IP address of your router. 6. DNS Servers:

I formatted my system and reinstalled Win XP on it, but now I could not use wireless to connect with internet


Make sure you have Wireless network adapter driver installed.

Manually assigned IP address and DNS address as earlier (if your IP setting is not automatically assigned by DHCP server).

If you are using router set your Router IP address as your Default Gateway Address.

If you are using Internet through a Proxy Server then Open "Internet Explorer ",
Click "Tools",
Click "Internet options",
click on tab called "Connection",
Click "Lan settings" Button.
Remove "Automatically detect settings".
Tick "use a proxy server for your LAN....."
Type the IP address of your Proxy Server and the port no.

It will work.
