Hi everyone,

I wrote this yesterday, but didn't know how to send it to the distribution
list.
Since then, I joined the IRC channel on EFNET and was told that there are
known problems with http and the Personal Proxy, and that a new version
will be available soon.  What I really want to know is if my problem is the
same problem which is known, ie: will the new version work for me?
Also, I'd like to see the answer on this list because when I searched
through
the archives, I was unable to find an answer to my problem ;-)

Cheers + TIA.
Graham

(Message follows)

I'm having some trouble setting up a proxy on a NT 4 PC, which is behind
a http firewall (yeah, I'm at work) but I am not able to retrieve blocks
from the 
RC5 Proxy.

Here is what the output from the Personal Proxy looks like.

[04/28/99 07:55:09 UTC] Server 205.149.163.211 is no longer connected
(reading).

[04/28/99 07:55:09 UTC] server: Closing server connection.
[04/28/99 07:55:09 UTC] server: Successfully put back 8 unsent blocks.

As you can see, it's neither retrieving any requested blocks, nor sending
the 8 completed
blocks, although it should only send these blocks up once it has 75 of them.

I have the proxy details sorted out as the client application is working
perfectly, I just
want to limit the number of connections being made outside this network to a
single PC.

Also, in the above log it shows the lines
	Server 205.149.163.211 changed from state 0 to 1
	Server 205.149.163.211 changed from state 1 to 8
Is this significant?

I searched through the archived posts on the distributed.net site, but
wasn't able to find
the answer to this problem, although a few people seemed to have similar
problems, or
at least similar log file results. My goal is to put the client onto as many
PCs as possible,
but I can't have everyone going through the firewall as this would probably
be noticed :-)

I hope someone can help, and thanks for everyone's time.
Graham.
