Re: framechat (tweaked for proxy, prob w/Chat+Userlist dl)

in reply to framechat

Waay cool, epoptai!

My boxes are behind a Squid proxy, so I added the following (first line to config vars section, second line to login sub)

my $proxy = 'http://proxy.dom:port'; $ua->proxy(http=>"$proxy");
Everything appears to work, except the Chat and Userlist frames which report "download failed, try again?".

Update: Chat+Userlist download fixed by epoptai below.

Update for authenticated proxy: First two lines to config vars section, third line immediately above $req=POST in login sub
(Works in other scripts from behind MS-Proxy, but as yet untested with framechat.)

my $proxyid = ''; my $proxypass = ''; $req->proxy_authorization_basic("$proxyid", "$proxypass");

Update: corrected $req->proxy... syntax above. Thanks, epoptai   8^)

    Alternatively, you can setenv HTTP_PROXY=http://proxy.com:port/
    And let LWP handle it automagically.

    Update: There was an old patch here. The source code has since been updated, and this node edited to make the root a little smaller.
