Hi guys!

I have been searching high and low for the answer but no such luck.....I am
attempting to connect by Debian GNU/Linux box to the Net through a Microsoft
Proxy Server 2.0. I can ping outside the local network but whenever I use
dselect, I get an error message. I understand that if the socks is enabled
on the M$ Proxy Server, I can use the socks4/5 client to sockify the
programs which need to connect to the Net, but I think the proxy server
socks is not enabled. Also, I have seen numerous postings regarding the use
of some M$ proprietary "protocol" which allows M$ Internet Explorer (and not
other Web Browsers such as Netscape and Opera) to connect to the Net. I
tried using Lynx in Debian and this is the error messages I get:

HTTP Error 401

401.2 Unauthorised Logon failed due to server configuration.

This error indicates that the credentials passed to the server do not match
the credentials required to logon to the server. This is usually caused by
not sendoing the proper WWW - Authenticate header field. Please contact the
Web server's admin to verify that you have permission to access the
requested resource.

In M$ Windows 95b(on the same box using XOSL), I can connect using only M$
Internet Explorer! Can anyone enlightenment me? Is there a space on the Net
where I can find the answers to this question? Thx.

P/S I am certain my settings on the Debian box is correct!
