Default Cannot upate - Connection Error 111

Hello,
I'm using Hardy 8.04 and have recently encountered an error message
whenever I try to update:
Connection error 111 which seems to apply to firewalls & proxies, but
I'm not using either.
As a relative, but enthusiastic newbie, I would be grateful for any
advice/guidance that would resolve my quandary.

What is the _exact_ error message you are getting?

Rafiq, please keep your responses in the same thread rather than
starting a new thread. From your other thread (Connection Error 11):

> Hi,

It appears that you are running a proxy. Do you have anon-proxy
installed and/or do you have a proxy set in System|Preferences|Network
Proxy?

Please keep your responses in the "Cannot upate - Connection Error 111"
thread rather than starting a new thread for your responses.


Oops...sorry about that...I'm very new to all this and it was an
inadvertent error. My apologies

Nope...I don't have any proxies enabled - as far as I can tell. How do I
check whether anon-proxy's installed?
