aoa

u need to use the ip + port # of the server connected to wan. i mean in uy mesengers setting u need to write the ip and port # of pxoxy,cache server

and usually port no for the cable net wala use is 8080
and ip u have to fine out by either asking or using the command
traceroute www.yahoo.com at shell which will tell u the next hop op address and for u thats going to be ther servers ip
it may be some thing like 192.168.X.X or 10.x.x.x usually kind of this
