Configuring Microsoft Internet Explorer V6 to use the proxy for Albury Local Internet

PC (Windows 98/ME/2000/XP) version

If you wish you can print out these instructions if you have trouble trying to follow them from the screen.

1) Clicking on the graphics in this tutorial page will NOT set up your proxies - they are sample guides only. Follow the instructions and open the appropriate windows in YOUR BROWSER to configure your Proxies, following the samples shown here.
2) Albury Local Internet's (ALI) Proxy Server is only available to ALI subscribers using their ALI dial-in account. Subscribers to other services MUST get the proxy name and port from their own ISP, and substitute these where shown.

Step 1.

To configure Microsoft Internet Explorer to use a proxy, select "Tools" from the top menu bar, and then click on "Internet Options"

MSIE View Options
This will open the Internet Options window.

Step 2.

Select the "Connection" tab.

In the "Dial-up and Virtual Private Network settings" option box select "Settings".

Internet Options

Step 3.

Make sure that Automatically detect settings is not selected. Click "Use a proxy server for this connection" (a tick or a cross will appear, as shown).

Then click on "Advanced..."
Proxy Settings

Once you have finished, click on the OK button to close the windows.

Step 4.

Albury Local Internet Subscribers set up your proxies as set out below, with the FTP, Gopher and HTTP proxy as and the Port as 3128. (You may have to uncheck the "Use the same proxy server for all protocols" option). Leave everything else as it is by default.
(Subscribers to other services use your own ISP's proxy name and port here)
Proxy Settings

Once you have finished, click on the OK button to close the windows.

Congratulations, your Browser should now be set to use the proxy!
