summary: Option to leave DNS lookup to proxies
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: medium: This should be fixed one day.

When connecting through a proxy, there should be an option to leave looking up the hostname to the proxy, to cope with setups where the client's and proxy's views of the DNS are different (search paths, client has no DNS configured, etc).

It should be optional; I can imagine wanting to perform the lookup locally (for similar reasons).


SGT, 2002-12-18: Should now be fixed, although it will want some testing. Roll on tomorrow's snapshot.
