#247 closed defect (worksforme)

System proxy settings not workable

Reported by: Owned by: dkocher
Priority: high Milestone: 3.0
Component: core Version: 2.8.4
Severity: major Keywords:
Cc: Architecture:


I use a ssh proxy tunnel for my networking (read: cheap VPN) and recently Cyberduck has been responding with an error: IO Error: Malformed reply from SOCKS server.

I also noticed that the ssh proxy connection posts a message saying channel x: connection failed: Connection Refused.

Now Cyberduck seems to be using the system-wide SOCKS proxy settings but before didn't seem to mind when I had the service set up, but now refuses to connect until I disable the system-wide proxy settings.

I don't know if it works fine for a regular SOCKS server (SOCKS4/5?) but with the dynamic proxy mode of SSH included with Tiger (10.4.5) does seem to fail it.

I am also seeing this in the very latest version of Cyberduck (2.8.4) and OS X (10.5.2). I have a SOCKS5 proxy set up locally via "ssh -D" and I have my OS X network proxy settings pointing to it. Same exact error- "Malformed reply from SOCKS server." Please fix!
