both work?
both opera and IE9 work but pinging, nslookup google still doesn't work in cmd. Or how do you access ftp on cmd with proxy settings?
ftp and https work in IE9?

ftp, nslookup,ping, tracert... no way in cmd!

Set proxy settings in the applications you want to use proxy. Mostly under tools->settings->connection. Select http proxy or web proxy there.

msn messenger, browsers, ftp clients can use the proxy. But also torrent clients can communicatie over http.

Most likely the proxy server only allows http, https, ftp. And maybe only port 80,8080,21. And maybe also blocks disallowed sites. And maybe also blocks exe files.

the network at the university uses a squid proxy at proxy is used to filter access to the internet..therefore dns requests are blocked from clients machines. the proxy forwards the request and blocks some websites as per univesity internet policy . ping and nsloookup is blocked hence you cant use the google dns or any other dns service behind the proxy.. if the fails change the proxy to and port usually works when dns does not respond. good luck comrades.
