    Hi. this is my first time using a elite proxy, im having trouble when i try to load it. ive read the sticky about how to set it up but its just not working for me. when i try to refresh the page after loding the settings for the proxy this is what i get:

    Proxy Server Refused Connection

    Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.

    The browser is configured to use a proxy server, but the proxy refused a connection.

    * Is the browser's proxy configuration correct? Check the settings and try again.
    * Does the proxy service allow connections from this network?
    * Still having trouble? Consult your network administrator or Internet provider for assistance.


    can someone help me set this up?

    im using FF and switchproxy.

    it's an outgoing connection from your browser. That would have to be a very restrictive firewall.

    Justone is the person to ask concerning proxy.PM him and ask him to do u a big favour. If u have nothing in the computer, ask him to do a remote access to fix your problem.
    You input port information wrong.
