Proxy
 
I have got a proxy behind my server~
I've read the readme.txt and it did specifically say that

==========================================================
SETTING UP A PROXY SERVER
-------------------------

For the latest information on this and other networking issues visit
the FAQ at [url]http://mersenne.org/ips/faq.html[/url]

Create a file in the same local folder as Prime95.exe, called "primenet.ini".
Add these text lines, substituting the appropriate proxy server URL and port:

[PrimeNet Proxy]
ProxyHost=http://proxy.megacorp.com:8080

If the proxy is secured by a userid/password, add the following two text
lines, substituting the appropriate values:

ProxyUser=whatever_the_userid_is
ProxyPass=whatever_the_password_is

After the first time PrimeNet is contacted through a secure proxy, the proxy
password is encoded and a new parameter 'ProxyMask=1' set. To change the
password, simply change the ProxyPass= value, and either delete the ProxyMask
text line or set ProxyMask=0.
==========================================================

I did all of that but I still can't log in -_-
I wonder if I did it wrongly though~
All I did was just copy the 'prime.ini' and rename that copied file 'primenet.ini' as i erased the content and just add whatever's required~

So yeah~
Could anyone help me on this?

Can you post the content of your primenet.ini file (with the password blanked out of course)?

[PrimeNet Proxy]
ProxyHost=proxy.newcastle.edu.au:8080
ProxyUser=XXXXXX
ProxyPass=XXXXXX
ProxyMask=1

Try deleting the file and creating a fresh one without copy and paste. Sometimes unprintable characters that get left behind can cause problems.

Add "Debug=1" to primenet.ini to get a more detailed report on the communication with the server

How do you create an .ini file though?
Right click > New > ?

Yeah already did that.
Says that;

Return code is not 200
ERROR: Primenet error1

Prime95 2005-10-29 03:58

The prime.log file should have all the http data sent and received. That may have more helpful error information.

<p>Sorry, you are not currently allowed to request:

You need to be using Netscape version 2.0 or greater, or Microsoft
Internet Explorer 3.0, or an HTTP/1.1 compliant browser for this to work.

(It says that)
(Strange though, I am using the latest IE)

[QUOTE=Unregistered](Strange though, I am using the latest IE)[/QUOTE]

Yes, but prime95 does not use IE.

The problem is either 1) squid doesn't like the fact that prime95 is passing an HTTP/1.0 request. or 2) You've entered the wrong proxy user name or password.

The next version of prime95 will use HTTP/1.1 requests. That is quite a ways off.

In the meantime, grab a few exponents from [url]http://mersenne.org/range2.htm[/url]
