Proxy Server Refused Connection Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections. The browser is configured to use a proxy server, but the proxy refused a connection. * Is the browser's proxy configuration correct? Check the settings and try again. * Does the proxy service allow connections from this network? * Still having trouble? Consult your network administrator or Internet provider for assistance.

If you're using Firefox, click on "Tools" at the top of the page, click on "Options" which is at the bottom of the list that comes up, then click Advanced, choose Network from the four tabs below that. There should be a sentence "configure how Firefox connects to the Internet". Click on the button next to it that says "settings". and make sure that "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network" has a dot in the little circle. If not, click on it and click on OK.
You may have to shut down Firefox (your internet browser programme), then try getting in again. Should have sorted it.

Hola someone tell me how to change up into proxy server help.


What is your default browser? Settings for using a Proxy server differs from each browser. For example, The settings for Mozilla Firefox browser are as follows,
  1. Click Tools->Options;
  2. "General", "Connection Settings";
  3. Select "Manual Proxy Configuration";
  4. Enter proxy IP and port to appropriate fields;
  5. Click OK to close Connection Settings;
  6. Click OK to close Options;
  7. Reload browser.
You must also be aware that the use of proxy servers without the express permission from the owner of the proxy server may be illegal in some states and/or countries. Use at your own risk.
Using a Proxy server masks your real IP address with a masked IP address. You can ensure this by visiting www.IP-Details.Com and check your IP before and after using a Proxy server.

How to access facebook at school when blocked


Hello,

In this article I will go over different methods of accessing facebook when it is being blocked by your school for example. None of these methods are guaranteed to work. This article can be used to access blocked sites in general.

FreeGate
1) If you are able, go to google.com and download Mozilla Firefox. It is a internet browser.
2). Using Firefox, go to google and download/install a program called Freegate.
3) Install the program and follow the instructions it gives you to setup the configuration. You will be changing some proxy settings.
Make sure that freegate is running when you are using firefox.

Switching to HTTPS
1) If you are at school, and you go to http://www.facebook.com, and it is blocked, you can try adding a "s" to http. What this does is switch from a standard connection to an encrypted one. Some administrators will not block a secured connection. Just simply add the "s" so it is https://www.facebook.com

Online Proxy
This basically hides your online movements. It is less likely to work as administrators will block sites with the words "proxy" and or common proxy sites.

1) You may be able to use an online proxy to go to facebook. The links below are to some of my favorite online proxies. Just simple go to one, enter in the URL address(in this case http://www.facebook.com) and it should take you to the website.

Click here for Zend2 Proxy
Click here for HideMyAss Proxy


CTunnel
This site has some really aggravating ads, but if you can look past that it is decent.

1)If you can access this website, you can use it to visit facebook.
Click here for Ctunnel

Setting up a private proxy server with SSL
This step is more in depth, but the pay off is that you will have your own private proxy server with SSL encryption you can use to visit any site you want without fear of being blocked or your traffic viewed. Very ideal for anonymous web browsing.

For this method, it is recommended to setup a proxy server on a Linux based computer, however, you can use Windows. Once you have a private server set up, you can set your proxy configuration in firefox to use your server.

You can read more about this step by visiting the link below.

Alternatively, instead of creating a server you can pay to use one or maybe you know someone with a server. A simple google search of "proxy servers" can yield the results you want.

I hope this article was informative. Be sure to pay attention and do your class work :)

Connection was refused when attempted to connect the proxy server


You can follow some tips when you make the changes in the proxy settings in Firefox. Obtaining your IP address is very important, and make sure that you are not giving the IP address to outsiders. Follow the instructions carefully; this will help you to make an easy change in the settings. And after the changes, you would be using the 'Manual Proxy Connection', so your details are not shared or traced by anyone on the net. To change the setting to direct connection, turn off the proxy and restart the settings. Now, you can make changes to the proxy setting. This feature in Firefox has enabled many Firefox users to have a safe and secure browsing.

Firefox refuses connection with ultrasurf's proxy


Well Ultrasurf obviously does not want to work with your internet connection (like mine)

For now you need to remove Ultrasurf. Go to Tools>>Add-ons>>UltraSurf Firefox Tool>>Disable OR Uninstall.

That should at least get your internet working...

As for a working proxy, try using a "Web based proxy"

Google it.

Thanks,
Ted
