Title: How to use Socks proxy in Firefox
Post by: cloaker on January 08, 2011, 04:25:38 PM
Trying out your software now....thank you for all the great products and info.

Probably a dumb question, but is a Socks Proxy the same as a regular proxy....probably not..thus the name, so I wonder can I use Sock proxies in place as standard proxies for instance in the "Connection Setting" for FireFox?

Thanks
