Download non direct urls over HTTP SOCKS

Oct 13 '12 at 23:43

I am trying to download using the Chilkat.Http.Download method.

I am connecting over a socks 5 proxy.

All works well for static download links; eg

But for downloads such as etc..

I have no idea how to make it work?

Any help much appreciated.


Does the "indirect link" work when not using a SOCKS proxy?


It does not work with or without socks soI do not believe the SOCKS proxy is the issue - it is how to handle HTTP downloads where the link is not an absolute URI?


Please post the contents of the LastErrorText property captured after calling Download.
