I am having some trouble with TOR, which I recently installed. I am at a college and we use the schools proxy to connect to the internet. I have an account for the network, and the username has to involve the name. I filled in the address and port. In the username I did "domain\username" and obviously in password I put the password. I'm not sure which ports the school may block, if any at all, but I tried that setting multiple times with the basic ports then other ones that I suspected they did. It is an HTTPS proxy.

When I try to start it, everything goes well until "Establishing an encrypted directory connection. In the message log I see
Warning: The https proxy sent back an unexpected status code 407 ("Proxy Authentication Required"). Closing. I have tried editing the settings first in the vidalia settings window and later in the torrc file. Nothing has worked as of yet. I am using "tor-browser-". If anyone can help me, please do.If I am in the wrong place, sorry. Thanks in advance.
