I've been trying to connect to my uni's library but I keep getting this message: "The proxy server is refusing connections". What does this mean? Why does it keep popping up? How do I get rid of it?

The error shows up when your proxy configuration either on your PC or your browser gets changed. This can be due to malicious software. Or it might be that someone inadvertently changed the Firefox proxy settings.

Reset Network Settings

First, click on the Start menu, type cmd, right-click on the command prompt and select Run as administrator.

Type the following commands in order.

  • netsh int ip reset
  • netsh winsock reset
  • netsh winhttp reset proxy

These commands reset your network interface as well as all Winsock and winhttp settings. If malware or anything else inadvertently changed these settings, these commands will set things back to normal.

Once you’re done, restart your PC and check if your Firefox internet connection is working.
