Re: [Freetalk-dev] Freetalk + Proxy

I think, the proprietary ones are able to handle non-standard ports
because, they run their service at non-standard ports as well.

It seems Yahoo! has something called 'firewall with no proxy' which
GAIM does not yet support. I have not checked a libyahoo2 based client
though. But is the non-standard ports the only problem since GAIM does
not work even when I give port 80 to it. AFAIK the firewall blocks all
ports >1024.

But funnily, now that I have got the sysadmin to temporarily open the
ports, Freetalk still does not work, but GAIM does. Is this due to the
absence of 'proxy support'?

version.texi is auto-generated. Your proxy env variable's values
should not get in there. Can you show your version.texi?

Ok. Here it is. I am attaching
/home/rishi/freetalk-0.69/doc/version.texi. I think the problematic
portion of version.texi is:


"I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep.
That's deep enough. What do you want, an adorable pancreas?"
