    Connecting through a proxy...

    How do I go about doing this using Winsock and a windows XP system?

    I've written some code that I know works in a non-proxy environment, but now with trying to test it here with the proxy it doesn't connect anymore. It fails here:

    Code:
    int ircConnect::connectToServer(char* serverName,int port)
    {
    	hostInf=gethostbyname(serverName);
    	if(!hostInf)
    	{
    		closesocket(iSocket);
    		return ec_HOST_ERROR;
    	}
    
    	memcpy(&sockAddr.sin_addr,hostInf->h_addr,4);
    	sockAddr.sin_family=AF_INET;
    	sockAddr.sin_port=htons(port);
    	if(connect(iSocket,(const sockaddr*)&sockAddr,sizeof(sockAddr))==SOCKET_ERROR)
    	{
    		closesocket(iSocket);
    		return ec_CONNECT_ERROR;
    	}
    
    	return ec_CONN_OK;
    }
    The bolded code is where it returns. WSAGetLastError returns WSAETIMEDOUT (10060).

    So...how do I go about connecting to a proxy? I would assume I just use that same function to connect to the proxy...but then what? How do I send requests through the proxy to the IRC channel?

    I just tested out mIRC, I guess the ports it uses aren't allowed on the proxy here, so nevermind.
