You can't access port 1080 because we block this port for security reasons.
This will not changed but you can disable this blocking with a hidden pref.

(see bug 92769)

Without patch i would mark this as dupe or wontfix....

Hi Matthias:

Would you mind giving me some details on the reasoning of blocking the port?  I
would like to know more.  If you think that it should not be discussed because
of security reasons, I would appreciate that if you could drop me a line giving
me some detail info or pointer.

Thanks much, Margaret (margaret.chan@sun.com)
Hello Margaret !

We block many known ports :
http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/netwerk/base/src/nsIOService.cpp#85

We block this ports because an attacker can redirect from a page to this ports
and can manipulate something.

If you want to know the exact reasons you should you should read bug 83401 (this
bug added the blocking)

and if you have more qeuestion, send a mail to dougt@netscape.com
