Hi again,
well in my network settings there is no gateway specified .. 
in my tcp/ip settings DHCP is enabled .. (win2000) so its obtaining the ip 
adress & DnS server automatically ..

>From what you say, i think the server has disabled you from getting any 
>outside access.  
--> ya rite .. but there must be a way out .. atleast some how i could be able 
to telnet outside .. 

i tried to go on a website which has a telnet applet which i can access from 
the browser & then connect to another server but even that aint working ..

---> oh bouy i have tried all that .. thats the usual way we connect to the 
proxy but even that aint working ..

& every time i start my browser & give a URL ..squid asks me for a login & 
passwd which is similar to the official mail id i have as squid & the mail 
server r running on the same server.. is there any way i could bypass that 
authorization or save the passwd .. coz in win2000 the "remember passwd" 
& "save passwd" really doesnt save it for the next use..

you cannot ping to any outside address ? connect to any website?
can you ping other machines in your network.
You should set up your client to point to port 8080 of your gateway.

use the same port for your messenger.

uh huh. From what you say, i think the server has disabled you from getting any 
outside access. check your gateway settings if they are proper.
