WebWhacker 4.0 for Macintosh
Q: Why does my Web browser start dialing the modem
when I double-click on a URL in WebWhacker while
off-line? When you double-click on a URL in WebWhacker, the
program sends the URL to your Web browser. If you
use MacTCP, your Web browser will automatically
dial the modem when it receives a URL. Therefore,
the problem is between your Web browser and
MacTCP, not with WebWhacker. The solution is to
use Open Transport, which comes with the Mac OS
7.5.1 and above.
Q: My Web browser has the name of a computer as a
proxy server instead of an IP address. Why does
WebWhacker not work correctly?
A: Some computer configurations require that
WebWhacker use the IP address of the proxy server
instead of the computer name. The solution is to
add the IP address of the proxy server to
WebWhacker by selecting Options / PreferencesÖ
and entering it on the Whack Settings tab. If you
donít know the IP address of your proxy server,
ask your Network Administrator.
Q: Why does WebWhacker still not work after Iíve
configured it for my proxy server?
A: WebWhacker only works with a CERN proxy server.
It does not work with SOCKS or other types of
proxy servers. If you donít know which type of
proxy server is being used at your location, ask
your Network Administrator.
Q: I can see the page in my browser. Why canít
WebWhacker whack it?
A: WebWhacker maintains its own connection to the
Internet that is separate from your Web browserís
connection to the Internet. One possible problem
is that the proxy server information is not
correctly entered into WebWhacker. To view what
has been set, select Options / PreferencesÖ, and
click on the Whack Settings tab. If you are
behind a firewall, your proxy serverís IP address
and Port number should be in the Proxy fields.
Q: Why does my computer hang when I press the Stop
A: When you press Stop, WebWhacker sends a message
to MacTCP or MacPPP to stop. If that other
program doesnít reply, WebWhacker appears hung.
Try pressing Command-period. If that doesnít
work, reboot your computer.
Q: Why does my computer crash when I access the
Apple Guide Help?
A: The Apple Guide that came with System 7.5.1
contained a bug that causes WebWhacker and other
help files to crash. We recommend downloading the
latest Apple Guide extension from Apple.com.
Q: Why does the FFGMenu not display on the menu bar?
A: It may conflict with another extension on your
computer. In the Extensions folder, rename
FFGMenu to put a space (or ~) as the first
character, so it loads first.
Q: When launching the program, I am getting a error
which says its missing "appleguidegluelib".
A: In your extensions manager make sure Apple Guide
