Can you explain this in more details?

The reason I ask is because Netscape and MSIE are browsers when Jigsaw is a
server/proxy. Did you mean when you don't use proxy, it works and with
Jigsaw as a proxy it does not? Or that MSIE does not work in any case and
Netscape/Jigsaw also does not work?

It might be important, so please explain the situation in details.

Thank you,
     Alex.
