First of all, you better not use the round-robin DNS rc5proxy, but
rather a specific proxy (rc5proxy points to all proxies out there)
Try "rc5proxy.llamas.net" or better "", it's address.
BTW, the roundrobin now is us.v27.distributed.net

And you DID configure the client for HTTP networking did you?
