For most people, including all home users, you should have the AUTO DETECT box checked. For users accessing from their company's premises, please check with your system adminstrator for the correct parameter to be filled. Please note that users running Microsoft Internet Explorer, RLS would have correctly detected the correct settings (except for the password field, if any). If a firewall is installed at your site, please fill in the details. Note that this should not affect most users.
