That is strange. Did you succeed in installing the proxy's certificate
in the certificate root store with Firefox/Icecat? Did you enable DNS
name resolution in the proxy (in my version of Firefox, you need to
scroll down in the proxy dialog to see the respective option).

It does, that's what Legacy Host (LEHO) records are there for: you
specify the name that should be sent in the "Host:" header in a LEHO
record, and then (assuming you gave the correct one), GNS should work
with virtual hosting as well.

Sure, that would be helpful. Ideally, we would like to have GNUnet
packages that make sure that GNS is working out-of-the-box (including
database(s), GNS proxy/CA/NSS switch, re:claim plugins, etc.). So
getting this 'right' can actually be quite a bit of work.

Of course.

That's also great, and we'd appreciate reports on how it went!

Happy hacking!
