I, have recently set up firefox, and gAIM in school. I have set up the firefox browser to work with the school's proxy (as all connections tunnel to one main server), which is "proxy_server.domain.castleview" on port "8080". From the port 8080 I'm guessing this is a HTTP proxy. This is set up on firefox and works fine. I'm trying to set up gAIM on the same proxy (proxy_server.domain.castleview:8080), which I put in:

Server: proxy_server.domain.castleview
Port: 8080

On this proxy I know I dont have to enter a password (as I didn't need to on firefox). I don't know what the username or password could be. What is the default username and password?! - I've browsed the web and couldn't find it. I have also tried obvious stuff like "username + password" and "anonymous + password". Hopefully somebody knows!

Thanks for any help,

if the server doesn't have a username and password..you don't need to fill those areas in...if that doesn't work you may want to talk to your school's it people...they may have programs like that blocked....or they may have a special trick for you
