How to setup proxy to access isee.americas.hp.com

We are running Compaq TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha Version V5.3 - ECO 2
on a AlphaServer ES45 Model 2B running OpenVMS V7.3-1.

I can not access isee.americas.hp.com or it's ip address 192.151.53.128 port 80, due to firewall rules etc.

I need to setup access to this specific proxy server, to allow access to this HP site.

Anyone done this have any hints?
I used to setup proxies for unix servers in UCX 4.2, is this basically the same?

Hi Victor,

I'm assuming your interfaces, and domain are already correctly configured. You or your system manager must setup the BIND Service to use the Proxy Server in your private network. Bind can be configured using the DCL Procedure...

$ @sys$manager:TCPIP$CONFIG.COM

TCP/IP Network Configuration Procedure

This procedure helps you define the
parameters required to run Compaq
TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS on this system.

Checking TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS
configuration database files.

Compaq TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS
Configuration Menu

Configuration options:

1 - Core environment
2 - Client components
3 - Server components
4 - Optional components

5 - Shutdown Compaq TCP/IP Services
6 - Startup Compaq TCP/IP Services
7 - Run tests

A - Configure options 1 - 4
[E] - Exit configuration procedure

I think I need to change this to say how can OpenVMS work with an MS Proxy server?

OpenVMS itself has no business with proxy servers - you need to find out how to set it within the application: ISEE.

I'm sorry Victor if I have misunderstood what you meant by not being able to access isee.americas.hp.com ... due to firewall rules etc.

My description of setting up DNS access and routing was a key part of what I needed to do to access the internet through our company's firewall.

I did find the following document, that describes ISEE installation for VMS, which you may or may not already have...
HP Instant Support Enterprise Edition
Client Installation and Upgrade Guide

I also found the HP ISEE homepage which may help others like me to first understand what ISEE is, and eventually orient others in this forum as to what is needed by you.
