When you attempt to connect to the Internet after running the Internet Connection Wizard, you may receive the following error message:
Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site <address> A connection with the server could not be established.
This error message can occur if you are connecting to the Internet using a proxy server (a server on the local area network that lets you connect to the Internet without using a modem). If the Internet Connection Wizard does not finish successfully, the option to connect to the Internet through a proxy server may be disabled.
To resolve this issue, enable the option to connect through a proxy server. To do this, follow these steps:
Internet Explorer 4.x
Internet Explorer 5
