    • Un-check the Proxy Server box: (Use a proxy server for your LAN )
    • Ensure that the Automatically detect settings box is checked.
    • Attempt to connect with Incredible Charts.
    • If the test is successful, consider leaving the settings as they are 
      (provided that other software is not affected).
    • If the test is unsuccessful, re-check the Proxy Server box
      and contact your ISP to confirm that your proxy server settings are correct.
