Re: How-To route other protocols through Privoxy (e.g. IRC)

Its a SOCKS-->HTTP translator of sorts. In other news, I updated the "Firefox Performance with Tor" entry to reference the FasterFox plugin, and removed the reference to the Squid proxy acceleration procedure that we all deemed a "bad thing" several months ago.
    In other news, speaking of ETM, There is a mirror plus other documents at http://anonymity-portal.us.

Quoted from ExitTheMatrix:
If you intend to use Privoxy to access non-web ports
(such as IRC), you may want to edit "default.action"
and replace the line containing "limit-connect" with
"+limit-connect{1-}" to allow privoxy to connect to
all ports.

Has anyone tried this?  I thought Privoxy was only an
HTTP srubber.

See http://wiki.noreply.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/TorifyHOWTO#Irssi for
instructions on how to use Irssi and Privoxy.

What would the benifit be to routing other protocols
through Privoxy?
