First, find out what your HTTP proxy is and put it into Socks2HTTP configuration. In Napster when you specify the firewall you do it as: Socks5, localhost, port is 1080. Please leave user name and password fields blank. This should have your Napster up and running
Close all running instances of RealPlayer and start it from sockscap32
More details here
When setting-up RealPlayer in View, Preferences, Proxy you should specify "no proxy".
You should append _ONE_ of the following lines(whichever works for you):
to (for NT) or (for Windows 9x).
If this file does not exist it has to be created
To make sure that Napster does not overwrite hosts file you need to use version 0.7 or higher of Socks2HTTP.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure that in your Network settings DNS is enabled. To get to DNS follow this path: Control Panel, Network, Configuration, Select Adapter, Properties, DNS Configuration, Enable DNS
You will need to download Winsock2 update: here and install it.
If your operating system is NOT Windows 95, you may need to reinstall it.
To find out if this is the case you can run "netstat -an" from command line, use task manager to find other instances of socks2http or other programs capable of using port 1080, or download and run an excellent utility - Active Ports from:
http://www.webattack.com/dlnow/rdir.dll?id=100150 which will show you exactly what program uses what port.
One of the reasons is that winsock layer is changed. This may be done by programs such as MS Proxy Client, e-border driver, Wingate client, etc. To fix the problem you need to configure these programs to "ignore" socks2http. For MS Proxy client, for example, it can be done by using the following settings in mspclnt.ini:
Make sure that you are using the latest version of the program. It can be downloaded from http://www.totalrc.net/s2h..
If it still does not work please do the following:
1. On the troubleshooting section of the configuration screen specify a valid file name, i.e. and log level of "more details"(v.0.9x) or 5000(v.0.8x).
2. Terminate and restart socks2http
3. Run your client software
4. When it fails, terminate socks2http and email us the log file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If log file is larger than 1Mb use Winzip to compress it.Also attach to the email the screenshots
(or detailed descriptions) of socks2http configuration screen and the client program configuration screen.
(Alt+PrintScreen captures a window into your clipboard).
We will diagnose the problem and try to
find the solution.
1. Do not use public email, like yahoo.com or hotmail.com for registration
2. If you use a proxy that may be located in a different geographical entity - do not use it during registration
3. Make sure that all your information is typed in without mistakes
