I hear you.

Gotcha. I don't see any reason why you would be getting an
error, unless it does have something to do with your proxy
server. In your original message, you mentioned that the
connection was refused by "". Was this the exact
domain name that was returned? Or is "neted" a typo? If this is
in fact the domain that was returned, then I may have a problem
with the form redirect.

Otherwise, I would like you to try going through the process
again, making sure that you start at the
domain. I have several other domain names which point at the
Newted server (,, et al.) and it could be
that your proxy server is not passing traffic between one of the
domain aliases over to the main domain.

Hmmm. That one should work fine.

This is why I think it may have to do with the proxy. As I
stated above, try again using the same domain name through the
entire process and see what happens. I'll try to monitor my log
files here and see if anything odd pops up.

After clicking the 'Submit' button, you should see a 'Membership
Payment' page. On that page is a PayPal button.
