TOPIC: Connection Scripts in IE and inability to connect

Connection Scripts in IE and inability to connect 9 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0
I have several customers who connect to the internet utilizing configuration scripts. Many of these scripts query a pool of proxy servers and then return an IP address of where to connect to. It appears that this IP is not available to either the GGW ActiveX nor the Native client installs. Thus resulting with the error message "Unable to connect to GGW Server" then the user is presented with a box to enter the server address.

This would seem to imply that the ActiveX and the Native Client are not proxy aware or require a static IP address to work. (This has been the work around to specify a specific IP address) however this in effect disables other intranet applications they may be running that requires the rest of the logon script to be run.

This is a serious problem that is becoming worse as more and more large companies are moving to this type of internet connection strategy.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Darin,

Have you tried setting up the GGW server to use the HTTP CONNECT (Proxy Tunneling) method? Check the Admin guide, chapter VI.

Yes, We have. This still requires a static IP address. Any IP address that is returned via a script is not received by the ActiveX control.
