[REBOL] Rebol behind a proxy

From: al::bri::xtra::co::nz at: 8-Feb-2001 22:01

I'm trying out Rebol behind a proxy at my local high school where I'm working during the day. I don't know what type of proxy it is, neither does the "network administrator" (he knows less than I do about the system!) know what type of proxy it is. I believe it's an old proxy, and with tests, I've discovered that SOCKS4, SOCKS5 and SOCKS seem to work (I think). Normally, to access the internet, I launch a browser (Netscape 4.7 IIRC) and the proxy diverts the first page request to a local page with a Java Applet that collects a username and password. If I use any other browser, Opera 5, MSIE 5.5, Netscape 6, the Java applet comes up with missing buttons and text entry fields or doesn't work. The username and password that everyone uses is the same, it's not related to email address or anything else. So my question is: how do I get Rebol to connect to the outside world without having to launch Netscape first and logon to/through the proxy? Thank you in advance. Andrew Martin ICQ: 26227169
