Re: Error 0x80072F78

I'm having the same issue. We don't use ISA or any other proxy.
This is for Server 2000 running SP4, IE6 SP1.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Eddie

Ideas only:-

Make sure that any firewalls etc are not blocking the svhost.exe.

John Dough posted:
I ran proxycfg anm it showed I was still setup for a proxy - even though in
IE it
showed I wasn't using one.
Running "proxycfg -d" fixed it all up.
