Thanks Guillaume,

I am still digesting the complexities of how SOCKS5 proxies for bytestreams  
are negotiated.
I am working on determining if I can use a private proxy server in this  
context and restrict the proxy servers use.

Authentication is the only way I could think of.

about basic proxy support.
