Sorry to cast such a large net. I didn't find where proxy servers were listed.
We have two proxy servers on our campus. Both are using squid. The main difference is the library bypasses our web security box for all sites and the main one bypasses it only for our local sites. This was done because mcafee was blocking sites we needed access to including on our own web server.
When we set things up we verified connectivity to the needed sites.
This morning we found we couldn't connect to the local authenticated site using either proxy. It appears the request for name and password isn't being forwarded to the client.
We haven't done anything to the proxies and I have been assured the web server wasn't changed. One of the symptoms is a pop-up saying "the connection was refused when attempting to contact the proxy server you have configured". We are unable to connect with either firefox or internet explorer. The resulting web display says "you are not authorized to view this page".
Since I really don't have an external authenticated web site other than gmail, I didn't do extensive testing on the outside access. Gmail worked fine using either proxy but so does our web exchange site.
I would appreciate any assistance with this.
