First I want to thank to Atul Aggarwal for his GSoC work. I've just
finished integrating his work in sip-communicator. I've made some
modifications in the code especially in the configuration form to make
it in the style like most of our configuration forms. I also made some
tests and added some more protocols to support this configuration.
But not all protocols support it for now. Anybody that can give a hand
on this and continue its work, are welcome.
I've also included a simple chart in the configuration form based on
the tests I have made. The results are that jabber and icq/aim support
all proxy configurations, but yahoo and msn support only socks
For yahoo and msn in order to support http proxies we must change some
of the protocol part. For msn I think the work will not involve so
much changes: sending every packet through http post and parsing some
extra http headers. For yahoo though the work will be as the one for
msn but will also involve some extra parsing, as they have changed the
protocol there and now are using the same data but encapsulated in xml
