Re: 3.2 - How can my client work through a firewall/proxy server

If you are running through separate proxies for each service, you shouldn't need to do anything. If you are working through sockd, you will need to "socksify" your application. Details for doing this can be found in the package itself, which is available at:


ftp://coast.cs.purdue.edu/pub/tools/unix/socks/

From: Vic Metcalfe

Some have reported that they can't get to the coast archive because it blocks hosts which do not have a PTR DNS record for reverse lookups. Here are alternative (and probably better) locations for socks protocol information:

ftp://ftp.nec.com:/pub/socks/ for Socks V4 stuff
http://www.socks.nec.com/ for Socks V5 stuff

Take care,
  Vic.
