RE: MS Proxy

Erm - people... MS Proxy is not a firewall in itself. Perhaps the NT machine that runs Proxy also has a modem/other device in it, in which case it is doing firewall-style duties (perish the thought though... an NT based firewall)

Whereas if you have another device controlling your link, then use that device's IP as your default gateway. You may need to configure said device to accept/route/proxy/etc your IP.

Look at [start] --> settings --> control panel --> Network then click on the /Protocols\ tab then double click "TCP/IP" then click on the /Gateway\ tab then note the IP for the gateway. There may be more than one, but the top one is the primary.

Then go to your debian machine, and edit /etc/networks/interfaces

Mine looks like this
        # /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)
        # The loopback interface
        iface lo inet loopback
# The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian installation
        # (network, broadcast and gateway are optional)
        iface eth0 inet static

(yes - that third paragraph was a dig at NT toadies, and I have two of the bloody things at work.)

I've been fiddling with getting through a MS Proxy from a debian box
in the last few days, and the ease of getting through it greatly depends
on the proxy configuration. I believe our proxy is set up to only let through http traffic. Any other protocol that gets through therefore 'pretends' to be
talking http.  I have not yet found a way to telnet out in this manner (but a
windows machine can telnet using the MS Proxy client, so it must be possible
_somehow_). I have however had greater success with lftp, which happens to be
available as a debian package of the same name.

However .. if you have the options of doing socks, I would certainly recommend that
as the better option.  I just wish I had that choice :)
