Well, it does work. If the person you're communicating with also uses
ICQ behind a firewall it begins to break down though.
The best fix is to install socks5 on a host you can reach without
masquerading (eg the masquerading host) and use it with ICQ.
You can download socks5 from www.socks.nec.com, but be careful of
the license (which is why no debian packages exist).
