Re: icq through masqueraded firewall /socks4

Ah forget it.  It seems to work with outsiders - it's just transfers 
between clients on the LAN that doesn't work.

Of course there are better ways to transfer files on the LAN than 
icq.  But it makes it difficult to test things.  Is there anything I can
do to the proxy server to make this sort of thing work.  (internal 
client to internal client transfers mediated by an external server
through socks4 proxy)?  Listen on the loopback address maybe?
