dselect thru SOCKS4 firewall
I have not found a way to use dselect through a socks 4.2beta server.
Can anyone help me get it working?
I do have dftp_3.2-1 working through the firewall. If I cannot get
dselect to work directly is it possible to:
use dftp to get the new Packages files
use dselect to choose which packages to upgrade/install
use dftp to download and install selected packages.
To get dftp to work I had to install unstable software to my 1.3.1
I also installed:
There are a few other packages these are dependent on too but they
are obviated by the dpkg command.
Additionally I had to:
set up /etc/socks.conf
set the SOCKS_NS and SOCKS_SERVER environment variables
and make a symbolic link from ftp to rftp
It is quite nice to have dftp working so updating currently installed
packages is easy. I would still like to have dselect working so
installing new packages can be easy.
