Re: Using socks4-clients with proxy at L.A. Free-Net (LAFN)

Was able to use rftp as outlined in post sent by me earlier today.
Sorry about the unnecessary post, I didn't try enough remote hosts
before posting.

After finding an FTP site that works, I was able to verify that these
two changes to /etc/socks.conf did the trick, on a Compaq laptop
dialed to L.A. Free-Net using ppp/pon (quite simple, really):

  1. commented "direct" line (added "#").
  2. added "sockd" line with proxy server and interface (ppp0)

$ cat /etc/socks.conf''
# socks configuration 
sockd @= ppp0
