Found time to play TM again. Bad thing is: behind a proxy. Worse thing is: TM won't work through it. Worst thing is: I can't bypass the proxy by any means. (And it is only socks4 )
Help? Suggestions? Congratulations? Anything?

1. Open ports on proxy:
Not sure exactly which ones are required but here is the info from the dedicated.cfg:

#Port addresses. For firewalls or proxy servers, it's best to
#allow access on all ports from 12300 through 12399.
ServerPort = 12300
ClientPort = 12350
MasterPort = 12399

2. Download/Install Sockscap: http://www.socks.nec.com/sockscap.html

3. Run TM sockified!

Only way I see to get through the proxy is to have the proxy server map the TM ports to a specific IP (a specific server on the internet), then in TM you tell it to use the proxy server IP as the server. This means the proxy server configuration must change for each server you want to play on, and you can't use the master server effectively.

This is the technique I had to use to play Quake many ages ago when I was stuck behind a proxy.

I tried sockscap, yes, what else. I keep trying. Yes, I think static portmapping might be the only thing left.
If anyone knows any _really_ good freeware or public domain proxy, tell me. Please.
In the meantime:

I don't know much about networking but if you are looking for a standard proxy you can get it free from Analogx's website at: http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/network/proxy.htm

Still no workaround found. Diablo runs (though not very well) socksified, but TM won't. Not that anything _but_ Diablo worked...
Well, I am desperate. If anyone has _any_ really useful advice
>> Calling those Network Pro's! <<

Please post it here asap.
