comment Inconsistent local network behaviour
i ssh to the lab thats ok thru' the cisco bypassing the HP, to a machine that has a private ip and started a browser and guess what? it does not connect, but the thing is if i physically got to the good lab and access the net though the same box, the net is ok via the browser, and if i ssh again from the bad lab through the cisco bypassing the HP, to the good lab to a machine with a public ip and i start a browser the browser works fine, these two results have me stumped. ~

i just left the lab, i'l have to get back to you in the morning on the device specifics, its a new lab (to me), and im new to the equipment, but the cisco is a 2960 or there about, now there is something else my post may not have made obvious, when i connect a machine with a private ip through the cisco, it can see the proxy, and also see the machines in the old lab thats doing fine, but wont connect to the net through the proxy , so i did a test,

@Adrian sorry, i was being more of lazy than paranoid the bad machines have no internet so i could not ctrl-c ctrl-v. the ip looks like 172.16.6.45 anf mask 255.255.255.0 though i think the mask is open at a the proxy, but earlier changing the mask to 255.0.0.0 while going through the HP the bad lab machines could see the proxy, then they stopped for a no apparent reason,then they started working with 255.255.255.0 and then stopped and all that within the last six hours. when i got to the lab one of the "bad lab" machined briefly connected to the net, then stopped completely. what a day.
