Which port is the proxy using? – Massimo Oct 17 '11 at 11:35
I am using "7866" port in proxy. – Khoyendra Pande Oct 17 '11 at 11:38
Then, as it's a completely non-standard port, you may actually have to open it in your server's firewall; give it a try and see if it works... – Massimo Oct 17 '11 at 12:11
where firewall contains this port setting are you know? – Khoyendra Pande Oct 17 '11 at 13:17
