Do I use proxy?

by billty99 / August 3, 2006 10:26 PM PDT

Hallo. I have a problem. I need to install SPAMfighter Exchange Module, but through the instalation the question "Does your server use a proxy server to connect to the internet?". And the available answers: (in short description) "No / Yes, with Windows Authentication / Yes, with custom authentication". Usually a service account have to be created, so all e-mails should be checked for spam through it. If I choose "no proxy" and then "next", I have to create the account. With "proxy / win auth", I have to write an Username, Password and the Domain. With "proxy / custom auth" I'm only asked for Username and Password. The stupid part is, that on the page, where you write UN/PW there's a message, that is not in English: "Indtast proxy server autoritet oplysninger. Disse oplysninger vil blive krypteret og gemt i registeringsdatabasen". So I'm not quite sure what exactly I have to write. A UN/PW on our Domain, or some UN/PW for the proxy... Can someone tell me where can I check if we use proxy or not. Can someone give me a link, where I can read useful information about proxys?

The language is Dutch

and it (ROUGHLY) translates as "Enter proxy server authority facts. Those facts will become encrypted and hidden to registering database" so I'm still in the dark about it.

If you connect directly from your home PC to your ISP (Internet Service Provider) then it is unlikely that you are using a Proxy. Proxies are more usual on a network like a School or Workplace where you connect to the Internet via another local computer in the same building. Try answering NO to the question about having a Proxy.

Good Luck... (or is it Gooden Lucken...?)

I'm Dutch, and can't make any sense of it.

Not Dutch.

It definitely is a Scandinavian language: Danish or Norwegian (which are reasonably alike) or Swedish (which is moderately different). As far as I remember, Danish and Norwegian use 'og' for 'and' and Swedish is 'och'. So this is one of the first 2.

Still your translation seems quite appropiate (compliments!). My still more approximate translation would be "Enter the details of the proxy server. This information will be stored in the Windows registry in an encrypted form."

The OP should send a mail to the makers support dept to tell them they forgot to translate one message, so they can correct this little bug in a future version. They surely will appreciate it.

It's way too complicated to begin with. And I think that language is piglatin.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
