I've spent about a year on and off trying to connect to the internet using Linux. I'm pretty sure I've found a modem and it works and the problem is in my PPP scripts. The main info I have from the ISP to set up IE is:

PRIMARY DNS SERVER
ALTERNATE DNS SERVER

INTERNET OPTIONS/CONNECTIONS/ADDRESS proxy.zajil.net
INTERNET OPTIONS/CONNECTIONS/PORT 3128

I've read PPP HOWTO 'til I can't see and can' find any reference to this port field. Any help please I feel a little embarassed going on all these Linux sites using IE

for setting up a ppp connection

Sir,
pinging proxy.zajil.net produces no papckets lost and approx 250mSec trip, but still unable to connect to any site. Does the fact that this is a proxy have any effect and how does the port address I mentioned in my first post come into it?
