make ICQ work through SpoonProxy|
needs to make DNS resolutions on the client computer. This can be problematic
if you are not running a DNS server on your internal network. However,
you can resolve this problem by doing the following:
use the SpoonProxy Port Mapping Wizard to map
Basically this means mapping port 53
TCP and UDP both IN and OUT to the IP address of your primary DNS server (for
on mapping DNS in SpoonProxy
On the other
hand, if you ARE running a DNS Server on your internal network and your client
machines are already set to use it, you should be able to connect normally without
doing this mapping.
There is no
additional SpoonProxy configuration necessary to make ICQ work. ICQ will
work through SpoonProxy with SpoonProxy's default SOCKS settings.
note that SOCKS support in SpoonProxy does expire after 30 days.)
Under ICQ's Servers
Tab, add servers starting with icq.mirabilis.com pointing to port 4000.
Here is a screen shot:
Firewall settings specify SOCKS5.
specify the IP address of the machine SpoonProxy is running on for your SOCKS5
host. The SOCKS5 port is 1080.
should now function normally. If you have problems, please double check
your DNS settings.

Domain Name Service.
an Internet Protocol (or IP) address is numeric, i.e. 188.8.131.52. However,
most people prefer a symbolic address, such as www.pi-soft.com. A DNS table associates
one with the other. Note: you can ALWAYS access a
location by numeric address, with or without a DNS.
you've mapped DNS in SpoonProxy and configured your client machines according
to instructions, you will be able to resolve IP addresses by pinging "friendly
names" from the DOS or Command Prompt. Pings will still not receive Ping
Replies as that requires a gateway server.
