I use "open socket" TCP style communication with the host using:
accept connections on port 8080 with message "newMsg" - everything runs
beautifully in non-proxy situations.

The use of 8080 is just a first attempt to get the traffic through routers
and proxies.

My program got on www.macnn.com and www.macupdate.com and now has hundreds
of users, a couple people have emailed that it doesn't work and I'm certain
it's due to proxy problems.



Has anyone made a program that uses sockets successfully through proxies??
