Does anyone have an example of using the Internet Transfer Control from
behind a proxy server on port 8080?

Thanks

I assume you mean for FTP?
May depend on the proxy/firewall, some only allow read-only access for
FTP. Some proxies that support ftp will take the address as the ip
address of the proxy server and the username in the form of
<username>@<ftpserveraddress>

Hi

I am using the execute method to post some data to a website. The problem is
that since I am behind ISA server the internet
transfer control does not want to work. The work around is to use
"Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive" accordingly to this MS article;
http://support.Microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;254396. So this is
what I am trying to do, except I don't know the correct syntax. Is any of
the following any good?

objInet.Execute "http://wwww.mysite.com", "POST", "Some Data",
"Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded Proxy-Connection:
Keep-Alive" & vbCrLf

OR

objInet.Execute "http://wwww.mysite.com", "POST", "Some Data",
"Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded, Proxy-Connection:
Keep-Alive" & vbCrLf

OR

objInet.Execute "http://wwww.mysite.com", "POST", "Some Data",
"Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded Proxy-Connection:" & vbCrLf
& "Keep-Alive" & vbCrLf

objInet is a reference to the internet transfer control.

Thanks

Sorry, but I only have experience of proxies in general, not the
internet transfer control.

Hi

I have received this (below) from someone. Does ISA use NTLM authentication?
Thanks.

"If the proxy is using NTLM authentication you would first have to do a Get
on the page. Once the Get makes it through the proxy, the Post can follow.
This is what IE does to get through the NTLM as well. It is very important
that the Get is done first, otherwise a 12032 error will occur."

OK, I created a new All/All/All protocol rule in ISA Server and it worked.
Not sure why the default protocol rule 'BackOffice Internet Access Protocol
Rule' does not work in this case.

Thanks
