Build ID: 7-8-2002, Windows 2000 trunk. Summary: Java applets fail to initialize with SOCKS Proxy 5. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enable a SOCKS Proxy 5 connection and load: http://www.mozilla.org/quality/browser/front-end/testcases/oji/lifecycletest1.html Expected Results: Applet initializes. Actual Results: Applet fails to init. Additional information from Bradley Baetz: We need to talk to the java folks. ns4 only supported SOCKS v4, and so the old proxy API only discussed SOCKS v4. We need to get a new PAC code for SOCKS5 (bug 78176), and then get java to talk to it. SOCKS has no versioning compatability scheme, unfortunately.
Rob, do you know anyone @ Sun that might be able to help out on this?
reassigning to jim for eval.

Currently Java Plug-in (JRE) does not support socks 5. It has been proposed as an RFE for next release of JRE.
Can we/should we move this over to that component in Bugzilla, then?
changing component to oji. resolving as invalid since this is a limitation of the jre, not mozilla.
