pass through proxy server
Posted on 2002-05-08
I have very limited knowledge about proxy server. I need to write a program to pass through proxy servers for data exchange.
If a company has a proxy server and once it allows for web browsing, using http proxy must pass through it?
Can I use TNMHttp client in D5 to do that then?
Then how about Sock4 and Sock5? Should I implement it in this situation? if so, any free VCL, source or activeX
can do it?
Also, the people using my program may have little knowledge about computing, they may not know what is proxy and don't know how to set. Is it possible to detect the network using proxy or not and retrieve the setting automatically? It seems that icq can do that.
