I had a couple of clarifications in this respect:

If i am connecting to an https site such as verisign then, it doesn't need authentication to open up. So, do i need to setup an authenticator?
What are proxies which i need to setup? How do i find my proxy host?
Why are they needed?

Please advise. I am getting a Connection refused on connecting to the site.
