The ping plloter should be able to cross a proxy.<br><br>

Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any proxy servers that deal with ICMP echo requests. Ping Plotter works fine if you open your firewall to ICMP echo requests, though. In addition, Ping Plotter works great with NAT.<br><br>

Pete, any way to have only one monitor testing through a proxy? Any way to create an extension we can use to input a proxy username/password?

There's no great way of measuring *network* latency when a proxy server is involved. Proxy servers don't typically like to send out ICMP packets, and they're pretty good at caching results instead of sending them to a server.

That said, you may be able to make a little bit of headway in this direction by doing HTTP GET requests. You can set up the proxy information in the options dialog of PingPlotter Pro, then use the HTTP GET script to check latency of the web server / proxy server combination. Lots of possible pitfalls here, but that's about the best we can do.
