View Full Version : Firewall
16th August 2001, 18:14
I'm a DJ on one of the channels, and I'd like to listen from work, but I'm behind a firewall (dunno which one)... when I try to jump to our station, it says connecting.... forever... but no sound ever comes out. Any help out there?:confused:

One thing you can do is either ask your administrator directly (if the sysadmin is friendly), or try to find out a bit more yourself by looking at your browser's (IE or Netscsape) proxy settings.
When you browse the web, does your browser ask you for a password? If so, you are most certainly using a proxy to make outbound connections.
Go to your browser's proxy setup (for IE 5.5, it's "Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings) to see if your browser uses a proxy to connect to the outside world. If so, copy those browser settings, and then go back to Winamp's "Preferences / Setup / HTTP Proxy" field and enter your proxy information as host:port.
(If you need a password to browse the web, your proxy setting needs to be username:password@host:port.)
