Questions and Answers / DSL connections
« Last post by Joshua on October 18, 2002, 01:08:57 AM »
Hello. I'm a huge fan of the program and have been using it regularly for the past 2 years but I now have a problem with trying to configure it to a DSL connection. Sounds dumb I know but it seems that I have tried everything with no success. I have tried re-configuring everything in the network settings boxes of IE but nothing. Please help...I miss the clean quick surfing. Thankyou

Proxomitron Updates / Proxomitron 4.4
« Last post by Arne on October 09, 2002, 03:54:22 PM »
Proxomitron 4.4 Released

Downloads Click here

New stuff in Naoko 4.4

* Added KEYCHK command. This can be used to test for keypress
combinations inside a filter. It works like any matching test
and can be used in a filter's match or a URL match. When the
match is done KEYCHK will return as "matched" if the keys
being tested for are currently pressed. Most keys can be tested
by using their *unshifted* values. However, there's several
special key tests which begin with a carat "^" symbol....

^A = ALT
^T = TAB
^F1 = Function key #1
^F2 = Function key #2
^32 = Virtual keycode 32 (spacebar)
^65 = Virtual keycode 65 ("A")

These are not case sensitive so either "^c" or "^C" may be used.
Multiple keys can be included to test for combinations. For


This will work for any combination the keyboard allows. Other
special keys can also be tested if you know the Windows virtual
keycode - this is a number between 0-255. For instance ^2 tests
for the right mouse button.

* Added LOGFILE option to blockfiles. Adding this keyword to the top
of any blockfile tells Proxomitron not to treat the contents as
matching tests or to load them into memory. This makes it safe to
use the file as a log file when using $ADDLST(). It also increases
speed - normally $ADDLST opens the file, appends the new entry, and
then closes the file again. However in LOGFILE mode the file will
remain open between writes to make inserting large amounts of data
much more efficient.

It's important to keep this in mind if you load a logfile into another
program while it's in use since recent entries may still be in the
file buffer and not written yet. However, reloading the config or
editing a log via the "Edit blockfile" option from a Proxomitron
menu will flush any unwritten data to the log. You can give your
logfiles a filename extension other than ".txt" then associate that
extension with a specialized logfile viewer if you wish. This allows
the "edit blockfile" option to be used to launch your log viewer.

* Added $FILE(filename) command. This will insert the contents of any file
into the replace section of any filter. It's most useful in web filters,
but will work in header filters too (keep in mind headers should only be
one line and no more than around 4k in size).

* Added $RESP(match) matching command. This command can be used to match
or capture the response code returned by a web server. Normally this
will look something like...

"200 OK" or "404 Not Found" etc.

The match starts directly with the return code so does not include the
"HTTP/x.x" portion of the reply line. However any message text after
the code is included in the match. For example, to match redirects
you could use "$RESP(302*)". This can also be useful to capture this
information for a log file.

* Entries added to a non-existent blocklist will cause a new "temporary"
list to be created with that name. This list will be memory only, and
can be used like a hash array to store information globally. Note that
the list won't appear on any menus and can't be edited (since it's not
a file), but can be called in a match and added to just like any other

Also keep in mind reloading the config or restarting Proxomitron will
clear all temporary list. Use a normal file based list if you wish to
store the information longer term.

* Multi-match replace buffers can now insert any amount of data
as long as there's enough memory (previously they were limited to 32k).
Keep in mind when desigining filters this does allocate extra memory,
so should be used carefully (especially if using the new $FILE command).

* Fixed error with stale file handles being reused - may help the
"half-loaded" page problem some people were reporting.

* Fixed reused connections still using the proxy after "Use remote
proxy" has been deselected.

* Fixed "Read overflow" warning from needlessly popping up.

* Fixed bug that could cause some hostnames not to resolve properly
when contacting a webserver on ports other than 80.

* Created a work-around for servers that send "deflate" content
encoding with/without the normal header bytes. Seems not all
servers format it the same.

* Updated proxcert.pem for another year. This is a self-signed
certificate Proxomitron uses for it's experimental SSL filtering
(not enabled by default). It's not an actual valid server

mySQL in the new forum has crashed regularly the latest days, and I can assure you that I have written complaints each and every time I have seen this happen. You can also feel free to complain too: [email protected]
 is the complaint address to my ISP. I assume I have written more than 100 complaints since I rented this place

Questions and Answers / Win XP SP1 problem
« Last post by nelamvr6 on September 18, 2002, 03:42:03 AM »
After installing SP1 my proxymitron is not working well at all. Pages with javascript don't work the way they should.

I've tried toggling the setup options that seem to have anything to do with java but still no go.

Anyone else have this problem?

Anyone know of a fix?

Questions and Answers / Rule ignores one .css file
« Last post by Mike Blake-Knox on September 10, 2002, 07:37:02 PM »
I've created the following simple rule intended to override the use of excessivly small absolute fonts on some sites:

Name = "Normalize small fonts <0-14>"
Active = TRUE
Limit = 256
Match = "FONT-SIZE : [#0:14] px"
Replace = "FONT-SIZE : 15 px"

It seems to work most of the time but I've noticed it doesn't work on at least a few stylesheets (e.g., the one at This same stylesheet is processed quite successfully in the Test window.

Can anyone help please?
