Gadu-Gadu via proxy (SOCKS5)

Reported by: mwte Owned by: tomkiewicz
Milestone: 3.0.0 Component: Gadu-Gadu
Version: 2.4.1 Keywords: proxy socks5


Pidgin does not work via proxy (SOCKS5).

There is no problems with SOCKS5 on other protocols (Jabber etc). It is just GG. Any ideas?

Same problem with Adium: #a9943

  • Summary changed from Pidgin via proxy (SOCKS5) to Gadu-Gadu via proxy (SOCKS5)

I can recreate this.

This is because the gg prpl doesn't use the libpurple core connection code - instead it code in libgadu makes the connection. There is some attempt to import the libpurple proxy settings into libgadu, but that appears to only support HTTP proxies.

It looks like fixing this correctly will require refactoring libgadu to support using external connection handling code.

Update: libgadu 1.12.0-rc1 supports external connection functions and gg prpl uses it, when compiled with GGP_ENABLE_GG11 macro set to 1. When the final libgadu 1.12.0 comes out, gg prpl should support any type of TCP proxy out of the box.

However, HTTP services (public directory, password change) still doesn't use these. It's a TODO thing.

Don't mess with proxy, when we use GG11 - it's handled by libpurple. Fixes #5576
