Hi Dave,

If I understand correctly you do not have actual access to your school's
proxy server? A workaround would be to call whoever runs it,and have
them 'disable' this server from using the proxy,even if temporarily to
see if this fixes your 'connecting' only problem. Or, have them
whitelist the url of the site(s) you are running the videos from.
Even at that it is possible that the proxy will make your server
'confused' say for instance in redirecting to another url to start the
video clip.
Also did you hard code in FF,and 'Network proxy' of server settings,the
actual proxy ip and port number to see if you can make your videos work
this way?

Sidenote: I have quite a time getting yum to work correctly with the
proxy server we have after umpteen updates of firmware on the proxy
server. Used to not have any probs. Even entering the proxy ip/port# as
in many suggestions found on the net yum fails almost all the time.Have
to bypass the proxy until this is done.

Take Care,
Barry Cisna
