Java & Proxy Settings

by Brand8177 / September 18, 2008 9:29 AM PDT

I wasn't sure where to post this.

I use a chatsite that uses Java...and I can't get Java to connect through a proxy. I got it to work the other day by going in the control panel for Java and using the network settings, but now it won't work. I was thinking that maybe I needed firefox or IE to have that same proxy. I can get the proxy to work with firefox, but not IE....but that one site...Java just doesn't want to use that proxy.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I have no clue about Java. I've searched the internet and I've found certain scripts that people say to put in, but I have no clue where you're supposed to put those in at. I'm pretty clueless here.

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you rechecked the proxy settings? Also, the browser must closed and restarted before any new settings can take effect.

Yeah, I've checked the proxy. It works fine on firefox, but it doesnt work with java. And I have restarted and all that. I'm not sure how to get it to work.
