Default Proxy - qbert.drew.edu?

Hi,

When we send out the address of our proxy server to database providers,
we are giving them 199.95.160.158. When I do an nslookup on this,
it gives qbert.drew.edu. On the other hand, when I do an nslookup
on 192.107.29.18 I get proxy.drew.edu.

What is 199.95.160.158, does it function as a Drew proxy, and should
we be sending this address to our providers, saying that it is our proxy?

Thanks,

Jim

192.107.39.18 is the address of Drew's proxy server... 70.18.81.103 is just one of our public addresses from the NAT pool... So, this means that you have Mozilla configured to use the Proxy, but IE isn't. (When you have the proxy set up and you are on-campus, it directs all traffic through the proxy.. for caching purposes... When you are off-campus, only the research resources and other sites that need to be proxied get proxied...)
