Interesting you say that because I did manage in the end to get my BSD
machine to talk to our MS Proxy server in the office, but only by adding an
address to the IP routes.  The addition I had made was the Broadcast address
of the BSD machine to the Ms Proxy server.  I have used a subnet calucator
to make sure, my subnet is correct for the address.  Any more idea's on this

I will try your other suggestions when I am back in the office tommrow as
regarding TCP DUMP and 'arp -an' and let you know how I get on.

Thanks once again for the suggestions
