Unable to connect proxy server. How do I remove the proxy?


I guess I'd need just a bit more information. Are you not able to connect to anything or are you seeing popups you don't want? Have you scanned your system for viruses? If you can not remove the proxy then there are several possibilities.

1st - Make sure you are logged in as the admin of the system you are trying to make changes on.
2nd - check for viruses.
3rd - if no viruses, make sure that you haven't been "browser highjacked". This can happen several ways. A big indicator of this is that your browser can be removed/changed/or otherwise modified but it continues to go back to a specific browser proxy. The reason is sometimes located in your "scheduled tasks" Look for things that are obviously not correct. In particular, anything that sets your proxy or runs an unrecognized dll.

What is the difference between VPN-connection and Proxy websites?


While both a Proxy and VPN service will re-route your internet traffic and change your IP, they function slightly differently.
Think of a Proxy as a Web Filter. The proxy settings are applied to your internet browser whether you're using MSIE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Etc. When browsing the internet through a proxy server, all benefits with that server are used, for example, (Security, Speed, and Geographic Location). The proxy will only secure traffic via the internet browser using the proxy server settings.
Unlike a Proxy, a VPN service provider(Virtual Private Network) encrypts all of your traffic, replacing your ISP and routing ALL traffic through the VPN server, including all programs and applications. This also will use all benefits of the VPN server such as (Speed, Geopgraphic Location, and Security).
The VPN can be easily connected or disconnected with the click of a button.
In conclusion, a proxy server is completely browser based, and is not as compatible with certain web pages that use non-browser technology such as: Comedy Central,Zatoo, Fox OD, and Sky Player. However, a VPN will work with ALL internet based services, but will offer less choice on which applications will get run through your ISP, as with the VPN, everything is routed through that server when connected.
So, you can get VPN services from sources like HideMyAss, Super VPN, etc., Once you have enabled a VPN service, you can visit IP-Details.com and have an IP lookup to ensure the change in your IP address.

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.

I can't open yahoomail and i can't sign in messenger


Hi Essienit,
Thanks for sharing your problem.
Please first of all find if any other yahoo ID works on your computer? if it works the problem is with your ID just send a request to yahoo help. pl forward same mail to me too (pl dont reveal your pasword), I will help it out.

if other IDs are also not working, check browser settings, its IP address (take the help of your internet service provider for correct IP settings(if you are using proxy, pl take help of your system admin). Onece browser start working, set messenger to no proxy or appropriate setting.
messenger --> preferences --> Connection --> proxy settings
In some of the messenger versions "take setting from browser is also available" if available, its the best.

Please revert to me if have any problem at any stage.
Best of luck

Proxy Server Refused Connection Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections. ...


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.
