The BeOS
Usage & Interface


I have my BeOS system running the BeOS and hooked up to the Ethernet at my company. Why can't I see external Web sites in NetPositive?

Your attempts to surf the web are being blocked by your company's firewall. You need to configure NetPositive to use your company's http proxy server. Instructions for doing so can be found in the BeOS User's Guide, Chapter 4 Using Internet Services, in the section Using NetPositive with Proxy Servers.

Note that the ftp proxy support implied by the options in the NetPositive configuration dialog box is not actually functional at this time.
