Default Solution: Address Not Found DNS Error

Seems that a few people besides me had a problem to get the tool to work with Firefox. I had everything working, and even confirmed that I could access the proxy with "telnet localhost 1080". But I kept getting "Address not found" in Firefox. Turns out that DNS via SOCKS is disabled by default in Firefox - at least on my system (Ubuntu 8.10, Firefox 3.0.8). The solution was to: - Type about:config in the address bar of the browser - Search for DNS - Change network.proxy.socks_remote_dns to true I hope this helps somebody - Graham, maybe it's worth while adding this to the SOCKS Proxy configuration description? Thank you for this amazing app! - Michael
