This is interesting. Although not completely related, I am experiencing the
same thing on my PowerMac G3 I just upgraded to MacOS 8.6. The client warns
it may not be compatible with the OS, and then proceeds to tell me that
MacTCP or OT is not installed (although it did get through to my proxy the
first couple of times it ran under the new OS). All my other programs,
Netscape, Telnet, IE, mailers have no problem with the TCP access, and all
my other machines have no problem accessing the 306 proxy on the Sun.
