Netscape Proxy server under sco 5.04

Post by Stephen Davie » Fri, 26 Sep 1997 04:00:00

We are using SCO 5.0.4 with Netscape proxy server 2.5

Some sites what we try and access through the proxy server will not work,
but when we go direct they work fine. Can anyone tell me yet.

1. SCO 5.04 + Netscape Proxy Server + News

 It would help if you post your sockd.conf file, and tell use whether or not
you are using a socksified winsock.dll, or socks options in the news
programs themselves

built in, not the news....

SOCKS Client: SOCKS V4 is available at The Hummingbird SOCKS Client is
also distributed on all Hummingbird software products.

SOCKS Servers: SOCKS V4 is available through anonymous ftp from SOCKS V5 is available through http at Most firewall vendors today support SOCKS V4 and

What version socks server are you running?  (I just compiled socks 4 from
NEC and it works fine)
