what do you mean internet explorer won't run on the "client computer"?
wont open? wont connect? gives error messages? what?

describe your network in detail
hardware?
topology?
what part of it does work? (files and print sharing...just file...just print...all other machines can connect to the internet just nt this one?)

I appoligize for my lack of detail. Internet explore is not running on my client computer. The explorer itself can not find the proxy server through the host. The setup has been done on both my laptop(client) and on the host(pc). No setting have been change, firewalls were all disabled on set up and host was done first. The client reads the internet gateway and all of internet access is working for msn messanger. Only my client is not navigatin Internet explorer through the host.

ok...so you just get a "page not found" or whatever messae in IE when you open it....you mention a proxy server.....are you actually using a proxy server? do you have a proxy server locally? or are you using a web-based one?

Start > Control Panel > (left pane) Switch to classic view > Internet Options > Connections. Click "LAN Settings" tick "Auto detect settings", click ok, apply, OK, and reboot. Then see if it works now.
