libyahoo2 doesn't support proxy, so is Freehoo. I guess firewall with
no proxy means, they just run Yahooim service at different ports. This
means just editing port info in libyahoo2 should make it work. Try, if
it works, we will make this setting user configurable.

Freetalk also doesn't support proxy. A new version of Freetalk is
under development using libjingle. It will have full proxy support.

| Ok. Here it is. I am attaching

| portion of version.texi is:
| ftp_proxy=http://mmh3:address@hidden:3128/
| http_proxy=http://mmh3:address@hidden:3128/
| https_proxy=http://mmh3:address@hidden:3128/
| socks_proxy=http://mmh3:address@hidden:3128/

I am wondering how the environment variables got captured into
version.texi. It is a bug. How ever, environment variables are used at
run time and setting it at compile time should make no difference. You
can try to re-build with out setting them.

Freetalk currently doesnt use loudmouth's proxy support. Loudmouth
supports only HTTP proxy. We need to specifically make use of the
LmProxy APIs to enable proxy support.
