With or without passwords?  It's not fascist unless you need a password.

HTTP mode is networking mode 4 on the CLI clients.  I don't know about
the Mac client.  After setting networking mode to HTTP proxy, you need
to set the address/hostname of your HTTP proxy server, and the port if
it's not 80.

You may also wish to hard-code one of the round-robin DNS addresses for
the key servers -- this was essential in 2.004, but I don't know if it's
important in the RC5-64 clients; I did it anyway.

Also, I'm pleased to report that the support for
fascist-HTTP-proxy-servers-with-passwords is working, at least with
the linux-mt client and the ANS InterLock firewall, behind which 3 more
worthy Linux boxes are now cracking away merrily.
