please add support for authenticating in SOCKS5. There are SOCKS5 proxies which require username/password, and it is not possible to use them in privoxy
sample proposed code change
I'm attaching a sample proposed code change, which will work with username/password authentication on socks5
Guys, please! can you code-in this feature? It is needed to enable btguard as a proxy. I tested the submitted code change, and it works. I increased the priority
Thanks a lot for the patch, but while it may work for you, it doesn't seem to be ready to be committed.
Having to recompile Privoxy to change username and password and the fact that the authentication doesn't seem to be optional is a show-stopper.
If you are interested in addressing these issues (and maybe others if they are any), I'd be glad to help getting the patch committed, but playing with the priority is not going to achieve anything.
SOCKS5 authentication support is tracked as TODO list item #105.
