: : : I am using Fund Manager both at home and on my laptop. When using the laptop at the office I am forced to go thorough our proxy server which is obviously behind the coporate firewall. I cannot get to Yahoo for price updates in this situation. I have entered the proxy address, user id and password and I get an error message that the server cannot be found. What am I doing wrong.

: : : As always Mark, thanks for your quick response.

: : Hi George,
: : I'm not sure, did you double check your proxy settings in FM? You can look
: : at what you're using in another program, like Netscape, that is working okay.
: : Also, are you sure you need a username and password to go through your proxy?
: : You can also try the proxy name instead of address, or vice versa. How are
: : you entering your proxy name?

: : Thanks,

: I have checked the proxy in FM. I have entered it in the numerical form,

: I am always prompted for a user id and password to access the net. Only certain people are allowed access to the net at work.

Hi George,
Does your proxy server also have a name? Have you tried using the name
instead of the IP number?
