We've written some code that sends http, ftp, and smtp messages
through winsock. We are trying to support proxy servers, and
we have recently learned of the SOCKS protocol, and have visited
NEC's socks information site.
My question is:
How popular is SOCKS?
Can we wait for winsock makers to support it, or must every
application that wants to open sockets have support for
Lastly, we have found that gethostbyname() doesn't work on some
corporate networks, I presume because there is no internal DNS.
How common is this?
