RES: Before Firewall

Alexandre Pereira - Tracker Solutions
        I'm sorry Larry Hall
        I have some problem with English .
        My ploblem is I could install the Cygwin .
        When I was installing it I set  "Use IE5 Setting" up.
        But after the installation for example I want use the links with
the command in the Xterm :
$links www.google.com.br
        The links return for me :
The page cannot be displayed
"
" There is a problem with the page you are trying to reach
"And it cannot be displayed .
" ---------------------------------------------------------
"
"Please ...
...
...
"
"403 Forbidden - The ISA Server denies the specified Uniform
"Resource Locator <URL>. <12202>
"Internet Security and Acceration Server
"
        I want to configure the Cygwin for access the internet but I
don't know how I can to make this .
        I try to find out something in the Cygwin's documentation and
the www.google.com but I could find out nothing . I guess to reach help
in this mailing list .
        Thanks

setting them up with Slackware in the same network environment.

Removed top-posting antics.

Each application needs to be made aware of the proxy. At present, I
believe I am correct in saying that *nix lacks a centralised method of
configuring the system for a proxy (squid in transparent mode with an
upstream proxy is the easiest way, but goes way beyond the scope of this
ML and almost certainly isn't an option here).

Anyway, to get links configured, run links, press ESC, use the right
arrow key to select Setup, press down until Network Options is selected
and press Enter.
You should find it relatively simple from there. Be aware that links
doesn't seem to support authenticating, so if you need to authenticate
with the proxy you're SOL.

Spinning complacently in the darkness, covered and blinded by a blanket
of little lives, false security has lulled the madness of this world
into a slumber. Wake up! An eye is upon you, staring straight down and
keenly through, seeing all that you are and everything that you will
never be. Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink. So face
forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling. Your future has
arrived... Are you ready to go?

You can actually try setting the environment variable "http_proxy"
(lower case) which should be recognised by many apps.  However, if his
proxy requires NTLM authentication then that is a capability that few
programs will have.  It's a proprietary and undocumented protocol, and
is only supported via reverse engineering.
