I was hoping someone familiar with the intricacies of how proxies work can give me some assistance. I am currently unable to get my private SOCKS proxies to work on my computer. They worked for a while and now and I can?t get any application to connect to the web with them. I can get HTTPS proxies to work just fine, but not SOCKS. It is not the proxies themselves because I have tried private SOCKS proxies from multiple sources. It?s always the same situation; HTTPS proxies from the source work fine but I can?t connect with the SOCKS proxies. I am running Windows XP Home. I have tried using the SOCKS proxies with Proxy Firewall, Proxifier, and FreeCap. No luck with any of them. Is there some configuration on my system I should be checking? I am really at a loss with this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
