I have 3 win 98 machines running distributed.net clients "Ver 458" with one 
of those running
personal proxy "ver 313 win32"
the problem is that the clients can ONLY connect and download  work units 
to the proxy when that client's machine is connected
to the internet by modem "packets are not going out over the modem 
connection on the client machine"  otherwise they run out of packets and 
give this error:

[Mar 01 07:00:08 UTC] 52 RC5 packets (189 work units) remain in buff-in.rc5
[Mar 01 07:00:08 UTC] Projected ideal time to completion: 0.16:44:51.00
[Mar 01 07:00:08 UTC] 17 RC5 packets (64 work units) are in buff-out.rc5

[Mar 01 07:00:45 UTC] Connected to distributed.net:80
                       via HTTP proxy
[Mar 01 07:00:46 UTC] FetchRC5::Unable to send request (-1.168).

even the machine that is running the proxy has to have a modem connection 
to get packets to and from the client
when each machine is connected by modem everything works perfectly
this seems like a DNS problem but am at a loss as how to fix it

I am sorry if this is a stupid question I am new to proxys and would like 
to make this work

Happy Cracking
