I have configured Y! 10 IM client to connect through HTTP proxy. The first connection is going through proxy, when client gets the OCS (the actual login server) address from virtual server. The client directly connects (second TCP connection) to the OCS rather than through proxy. My understanding of proxy setup in IM client is : every connection should go through proxy irrespective of any protocol.
When I configure SOCKS proxy, every connection is going through proxy. Why the same behavior is not happening with HTTP proxy ? Can somebody please answer ? and correct me if I'm wrong.
PS : If this is not the right forum to post this question, please suggest me the same if you have idea on that.
