It may not be 'supported', but I've managed to get it to work. I was
'forced' to use it quite a while back when I was using one of the
infamous 'spamming clients'. My home network ip was on the 'reject
list' for a time and I managed to chain that perproxy to another on an
external box that I have access to.
The config for my home network perproxy was:
ipaddress=<name of external proxy box here>
The external perproxy had a standard setup. I don't have it at the
moment, but if need be I can dredge it up.
