when browsing pages i frequently get 'connection refused' messages. i think it has something to do with the use of a socks proxy because i don't get these messages when i disable proxy usage. my socks proxy settings are: host: proxy.tuwien.ac.at port: 1080
email@example.com can you please take a look at the bug writing guidelines to see the kinds of information thatt helps us process your issue efficiently. http://www.mozilla.org/quality/bug-writing-guidelines.html What build did you test this on. How frequently were you able to make a connection?
to be more specific: i tested this on the m17 browser component; i don't know if it has something to do with it, but i noticed that behaviour on pages with lots of advertising banners. (e.g. www.ipo.com, www.bigcharts.com); on www.ipo.com, for example, i get 3-5 'connection refused' messages per page maybe it's got something to do with the banners being served from a different domain than the pages themselves... sorry for being sloppy on the first take, patrick

*** Bug 49718 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Reporting comments from dupe bug 49718: Socks proxy causes weird "connection refused" messages I was trying to use Mozilla M17 from work on my linux box, it works fine with our http proxy (though our http proxy is dog slow and only works for parts of the day), but with socks it says connection refused constantly. Especially when submitting forms (but not exclusively, this may be a red herring). Unfortunately our socks is the only fast one. I had this same problem on Win 2k with Netscape 6.0 PR2. The same socks proxy works fine with the most recent Communicator for both Linux and Win 2k. I cant wait for mozilla to get this fixed and java support for both linux and windows up to spec, then life will be really good.... In the log it would just say error connecting. Sometimes that would happen even though it loaded the page.

I'm seeing too this messages, but I do not use any proxy (the proxy is autoconfigurated at my provider). Not all time, but I also see it using win98/me/2000. Now i'll try to find how to reproduse it. Removing milestone (M17 is out for a mounth).

I'd like to look at this problem further, but I need more information: 1- If this is happening to you still, please update this bug and let us know. 2- If you can give us the URL to a page that gets these problems, please add it here. 3- If we can test with your SOCKS server, please let us know. This and the linked duplicate are the only report of the problem, so I am unconvinced this is a broad problem for mozilla users.
I still get this problem. With the latest build downloaded on the morning of 3-19-2001, I can't get through my firewall to *anywhere* while Communicator 4.76 connecting through the same server reports no errors. I'm sorry but I have no control over our internal servers. Oh, and Mozilla (on Linux) spit out: Error loading URL http://lwn.net/daily/: 804b000d
changed summary: to reflect that this bug is about partial failures in SOCKS.
Summary: frequent 'connection refused' messages when connecting through a socks proxy → SOCKS: intermittent 'connection refused' errors

There is a timeout problem connecting to a proxy server which is not local. This has been fixed in 65583, which has a patch ready, but hasn't been checked in yet.
Should be fixed by fix for bug 65583.

VERIFIED: nobody has reported this in a long time. (strangely, our proxy server is really overloaded (Sparc 20), but did not have this problem...)
