[Lots of Stuff Snipped]
I have a similar firewall, its a socks that allows no incoming connections,
and only allows specific ports out... I did the following:
I set up my win95 machine running sockscap32...
I set up the personal proxy to go out on port 23, the standard telnet port..
I run the personal proxy from sockscap, so it is socksified.....
Then I set up all the spare PC's on my site (and my win95 PC) to connect
to my win95 machine as normal....
This works quite well for me, I am using the TIMC client, but have tested
the bovine client. I am also running the linux-aout client and the
supersparc clients, all connecting to the personal proxy.....
I have included my config file for the proxy, in case they may assist
-------------- next part --------------
ipaddress=rc5proxy.distributed.net ;address of keyserver
port=23 ;port on keyserver to talk into
workperiod=30 ;minimum seconds between network accesses
threshold=5 ;minimum streaming block size (number of keyblocks)
ipaddress= ;local IP to bind to (or leave blank for all)
port=2056 ;local port to listen to
timeout=5 ;timeout for dead incoming connection
backlog=5 ;incoming TCP connection backlog
minkeysready=10 ;proxy will try to maintain this minimum
maxkeysready=30 ;proxy won't fetch more keys than this value
logfile=c:\rc5log.txt ;filename to log messages to (or blank for none)
