Question by Christine: How do I connect to AIM through a proxy?

Okay. I just discovered proxies and learned that I can use them to connect to AIM. Problem is, I have no idea how to do so. In my Connection tab in AIM, it has a section for “Connect Using Proxy”, but I don’t know what to put in for the Host, Port, Protocol, or Authentication. Help?

  1. inconclusive_conjunction says:

    Host: IP address of the proxy, ie. 123.45.67.89.

    Port: Port the proxy wants you to connect to the above address at, ie. 8080

    Protocol:Whatever the proxy list specified, probably SOCKS.
