    hey roomies

    I'm using proxiesforrent, this is my 4th day
    they've been working fine until about an hour ago

    and now I'm getting the message that the proxy server
    is refusing connection?

    I've used proxies before, but never encountered this issue
    is this common place? I didn't touch my network settings
    just loaded the proxy as usual, then this happened a little
    while later......using US based proxies


    (BTW the service and speed of the proxies has been great
    up to now, so I have no other complaints)


    any info would be helpful

    thanks

    Hali~!:)

    thanks amber,

    that was a simple conclusion even for a layman like me
    I've experience using proxies, but not "ultra" experienced..

    just didn't know if that is usually likely the case.....
