-2 -   How can I check whether my Web browser is configured to accept Internet cookies?

Please refer to the answer to the previous question. The option to enable or disable cookies is located in the same place as JavaScript controls.

-3 -   Are there any known browser comparability issues?

The general minimum browser requirements to access the Megaproxy® Web SSL VPN service are Netscape or Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 4 or above. Our service has been tested, and is known to be compatible, with Netscape 6.0+; Mozila based browsers, Opera 6.0, and Internet Explorer 4.0+. Other browsers and versions of the above should work as well if they support system requirements.

-4 -   Do you recommend that any specific browser be used with Megaproxy® to achieve maximum performance?

To achieve maximum performance and avoid potential browser incomparability issues, we recommend Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0+ (SP2) browser and the latest Mozilla code browsers: (Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino for MacOS)..

-5 -   What version and key strength of SSL does Megaproxy® support?

Megaproxy® supports both the older SSL version 2 and the more secure V3 for incoming encrypted connections. Your browser can connect to Megaproxy® using 40-bit (export or international) and 128-bit (US domestic) depending on the support build-in in your web browser. The longer the key, the more difficult it is to break the encryption code. 128-bit browser SSL encryption is the strongest in the world: according to RSA labs, it would take a trillion years to crack using today's technology. 128-bit encryption is approximately 3 x 10(26) stronger then 40-bit encryption.

-6 -   Does Megaproxy® require the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) plug-in?

Megaproxy® does not need Java JVM to work. Many users tend to confuse the Java JVM plug-in with Java Script. They are completely different technologies and greatly differ in functionality. Most Internet browsers support dynamic JavaScript without any helper plug-in applications. In contrast, Java programs or applets can be embedded in a web page but require a web browser to invoke a third-party Java JVM plugin, which would then download and execute binary files on your computer outside of your web browser.

-7 -   How can I check to see if I am connected to Megaproxy® with 40-bit or 128-bit SSL encryption?. Also, how can I tell if the connection is secure?

Popular Microsoft and Netscape browsers offer two versions of their Web browsers (export and domestic) each of which enable a different encryption level. To confirm that your information is in fact encrypted, perform the following steps:

Place your cursor in the frame you want to check.
<> Netscape: With a Netscape browser, right-click, select 'View Frame Info' or select 'View' » » 'Page Frame Info' from the browser menu bar.
<>Microsoft Internet Explorer: With an Internet Explorer browser, right-click, select 'Properties.' » » Check the web address that you have accessed. If you are in a secure area, the address will start with https://. Notice the "http(s)://" in the url address. This means that you have accessed a secure server.
Another way to quickly check: Netscape and Internet Explorer have a small padlock on the bottom of the browser window that indicates a secure connection when in the locked position. In Netscape, the padlock icon is located in the lower left corner of the window; in Internet Explorer, the padlock icon appears in the bar at the bottom of IE window.

-8 -   My browser crashed during a surfing session with Megaproxy®. What can I do?

The Megaproxy® service is based on industry standard HTML, CSS and client-side JavaScript components. We do not use sophisticated browser specific JavaScript functions that may interfere or crash your Internet browser. In the unlikely event that your browser does crash, please consider "patching" it with the latest bug releases from your browser vendor.
