    Default proxy setting error

    i use a pxoxy to connect to the internet.
    i can access the internet using the browser.
    however, i am unable to ping google.com or any other site for that matter.
    i tried setting the environment variable , HTTP_PROXY
    but that does not help

    what do i do?

    Well you could ask either your proxy admin if he would enable you to ping something. Or you could have to use a tunnel.

    Not sure the ping will go through the proxy?

    If you can access the internet what proxy error are you referring to?

    ICMP traffic may be blocked at a firewall?
    wtf?
