In version 1 of Netscape, a fill-out form can be brought up by choosing
Options Preferences Proxiesfrom the menu bar. The current beta releases of Netscape version 2 adopt a slightly difference style based on Windows 95 look and feel:
Options Network... ProxiesNetscape version 2 allows the configuration to be set either by filling in a form or by downloading a script. The script approach is more flexible than the form, and allows multiple cache servers to be configured to provide a fall-back capability. For manual configuration click on the button labelled View... and fill out the resulting form as shown below.
Note that only the host name of the cache server should be entered in the boxes on the left hand side of this form, i.e. wwwcache.lnf.infn.it rather than http://wwwcache.lnf.infn.it/
The completed form should look like this:
Wais_ProxyPort= Ftp_ProxyPort=8080 Gopher_ProxyPort=8080 Http_ProxyPort=8080 No_Proxy=lnf.infn.it Gopher_Proxy=wwwcache.lnf.infn.it FTP_Proxy=wwwcache.lnf.infn.it HTTP_Proxy=wwwcache.lnf.infn.it Wais_Proxy=
The current configuration is saved in the user's home directory as .netscape-preferences in version 1 and .netscape/preferences in version 2. The format looks like this:
FTP_PROXY: wwwcache.lnf.infn.it:8080 HTTP_PROXY: wwwcache.lnf.infn.it:8080 GOPHER_PROXY: wwwcache.lnf.infn.it:8080 WAIS_PROXY: NO_PROXY: lnf.infn.it
No idea what's going on here! Help!!
