windows socket: gethostbyname() via proxy
Posted on 2002-05-13
I want to use gethostbyanme() on a client PC to validate some host names. My connection to Internet is through a proxy server, there is also a firewall. The function alsways return NULL, even on those definatly valid host names. But it works fine within the intranet. I want to know if it is because the proxy server or the firewall or both, and how to get around it?
