Description Mathieu COUSIN 2006-01-09 17:41:02 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
Installed from:    Mandriva RPMs
OS:                Linux

Let me present the situation that justify my request.

On one hand, in my company, we have an internal IM system on which I'm connected to with Kopete.
On the other hand, my company provide a Socks Proxy especially for "other IM systems" with the outside world. This specific Socks Proxy is different from other socks proxy I may use or the usual HTTP proxy I use to browse the web.

The result is I would like to be able to specify a proxy setting, different from default, on a "per account basis".

Actually, it seems GAIM has something that looks like what I need (the problem is that I prefer kopete as my IM client...). On each account settings, it presents, in the "Advanced" tab, either "Use Global Proxy Setting" or "No Proxy", "HTTP", "Socks4", ... with dedicated values to this account.

Do you think this is something which could be added in Kopete future releases?

I would like to send all IM traffic over TOR because it makes it much harder for an potential attacker to find relations between me and my contacts.

So you got my vote. I think it should be possible in KDE to select a proxy at least for each application and not just all or nothing.

there is only support for socks5 in Qt4 [that I know of].
Comment 9 Thiago Macieira 2010-05-27 09:49:54 UTC
And HTTP. But not SOCKS4.

SVN commit 1138562 by shaforo:

add UI for proxy parameters configuration to ICQ account preferences dialog.

it will be more obvious to users as to where to configure proxy settings for ICQ.
and it is done the way WLM protocol plugin does.

future plans include:
-proxy requiring authentication
-system-wide proxy/account-wide proxy selection

Proxy setting works nice for ICQ (kubuntu 10.04, kde 4.5.0) 

Thanks Kopete Team,

Waiting for proxy setting for other protocols (Gtalk, GG)
