Proxy Server and Outlook Express (News)

Proxy Server and Outlook Express (News)

Proxy Server and Outlook Express (News)

Autodesk's WEB site has tech support which goes to AutoCADĀ® Discussion Groups
which launches Outlook Express.
If I use my modem to dial up teh internet I get in just fine.
If I switch to using our Proxy Server 2.0 for internet Access I cannot get in. Our Proxy Server is connected to a DSL modem so it is very fast. It will load but says "Loading cached headers" and will not get the latest ones posted.

Error reads "The host adesknews.autodesk.com could not be found Please Verify you spelled it correctly.
Now Outlook express engineer say's it a Port issue in Proxy Server like we are using Port 80 to go to the WWW. I need to add a port for the Discussion Group.

Does anyone know how and where to set up a port for the news services? And which port number is it.

RE: Proxy Server and Outlook Express (News)

Here is somes additional stuff on the Error Details TAB

Server Response:
Account: adesknews.autodesk.com
Server: adesknews.autodesk.com
Port: 119
Secure(SSL): 0

RE: Proxy Server and Outlook Express (News)

You need to allow port 119 through your Proxy server.

RE: Proxy Server and Outlook Express (News)

That much I figured out.

Tell me what to Click, when, where and how, and which box to type in 119
the Help in Proxy is NOT clear at all and assumes you worked at Micorsoft in the LAB where they wrote it.
So you need to have an intimate knowledge of it and know exactly where "In the definition protocol dialog box" is.
