When you install RRAS and IIS Proxy Server on a Windows NT 4.0 Server, and you use RRAS Demand Dial instead of Proxy's Demand Dial. Proxy clients may timeout on the *first* attempt to connect to a resource across the demand-dial link if the link is not working properly.

If you click Refresh in your browser when the connection is working again, the proxy client works correctly.


The issue occurs because on the first connection attempt an incorrect IP address is used as the source address when the Demand Dial connection is not working.
