Hello from East Timor

From: Pierre .


Hi all from sunny downtown Dili!!

To any enterprising builders or developers, there may just be a bit of work for you here, but the property market is not somewhere I'd like to venture just at this moment. Apparently there are some major issues with the locals about land ownership. There are land claims galore happening as a result of families claiming back land taken by the Indonesians from 1975 - 1999. You could find yourself buying a house and having it subsequently claimed back by some previous owner! I'm certainly not going there.

Anyway, I'll drop in every now and then to say g'day.

Anyone know how to configure MIRC to go through a firewall?? I cant get it to work on these UN computers. I know the UN proxy settings, and would like to join chat, but need some tech assistance.

Robert - how 'bout you - can you help me out??

"Peacekeeper" Pierre,
Dili, East Timor

Hi Pierre

Great to hear from you. Hope everything is going well for both you and the East Timorese people.

Unfortunately I don't know how to get mIRC working. Though Mich Gruber or Sim may be able to help.

Looking forward to catching up again soon

Cheers
Robert

Hi Pierre,

Setting I use in mIRC are either (depending on where I am)

For HTTP proxy:

mIRC Options -> Connect -> Firewall

Use Firewall: checked
Protocol: Proxy
Hostname: myproxy.myorg.com (insert proxy server hostname or IP address here)
UserID: <blank - unless required>
Password: <blank - unless required>
Port: 8080 (insert proxy port number here)

For socks proxy:

mIRC Options -> Connect -> Firewall

Use Firewall: checked
Protocol: Socks4
Hostname: mysocks.myorg.com (insert socks server hostname or IP address here)
UserID: <blank - unless required>
Password: <blank - unless required>
Port: 1080 (insert socks port number here)

Hope this helps.

Can't help you with the computer stuff but congratulations, to everyone up there (or been there), on a job well done.

Thanks for having a go Sim, but:

1. I must be a total computer gumby or
2. I need to speak to the UN IT people to work it out.

I'll keep on trying.

On the building front, I saw a number of Aussie contractors madly building away in the UNTAET HQ compound today, so any adventurous builders may want to check things out - the UN pays pretty well! (Not me 'though - I don't get paid by the UN).

I'll keep trying until I may get through,
