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
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 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0" line (added "#").
2. added "sockd" line with proxy server and interface (ppp0)
$ cat /etc/socks.conf''
# socks configuration
#direct 127.0.0.1 255.255.255.255
#direct 10.7.10.255 255.255.255.0
#sockd 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0
#direct 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0
sockd @=188.8.131.52 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 ppp0
