Netscape communicator 4.7.2 hangs after setting proxy settings. I am using
squid 2-2-stable from web proxy. It hangs for five minutes after you start
netscape and comes back with can't find url. But if you hit reload it
bring's up the web page. Also after setting up mail for netscape using
jsentry 3.1 mail proxy and get my mail. Then the next time I start
netscape it hangs and does not ever respond. The only way to do anything
is to reboot system.

Sounds like you're having problems with name resolution;
what does /etc/resolv.conf look like, and how are you connected
to the net?

closed, lack of input.

Comment 3 sjdyer 2000-04-21 03:47:59 UTC
I am connecting through a dial up connection. the resovl.conf on server is
set to dns settings for isp and work station is set to go to server. As I
said before netscape navigator by it's self works fine through the redhat
proxy server. But netscape commnuicator does not. I did however fix the
problem by upgrading to netscape communicator ver 6.0.

If using a mozilla-based browser works, that's good. In any case, we really
can't fix internal netscape networking behavior, as we don't have access to the
source code.
