No answers here, sorry  :(

Only the confirmation that I have the same problem:
on advice of Jeff Lawson <bovine at distributed.net> (see a few mails back on 
this list) I downloaded the latest (and CLI) version of the win95-proxy to 
be able to add the firewall-settings as in the client.

I copied the parameter-values from my client ini into the proxy ini and 
received the same results as before: no connection with the key-servers at 
all.   :(

I hope that Jeff can help us both with this problem.

Best Regards,

The [original] error appears to be that the personal proxy will not
accept an IP address as httpproxy, it needs the full domain name. Can
anyone confirm this is the case?

Having replaced the IP address with the fully Qualified domain name I am
now getting either :-

Server closed the connection.

OR :-

Server packet failed descramble.
Error processing sever data. Closing.

Neither of which gets me very far. I think the closed connection could
just be a busy http proxy but the descramble message is a little more

The GUI client I have working uses a firemode of 4 and I thought this is
what I should use for uuehttpmode but I have tried 1, 2, 3 and 4 just in

Anyone got a clue as I have none left.
