    Having some trouble setting these programs up:


    I'm trying to use Agent, TOR, and FreeCap to connect to a non NNTPS (not the one you see in this post).

    Agent: Starts from FreeCap

    localhost
    port:119
    Authentication with name and pasword.

    Freecap:
    localserver
    port: 9050
    Socks5, no authentication

    TOR:
    Loaded with default settings.

    I get this message when trying to connect to the NNTP server using FreeCap to start Agent and TOR running:

    TOR:
    [warn] conn-read<>: Unhandeled error on read for OR connection <fd 976>;remaining.

    Then after a few tries, teh same message with "giving up".

    Agent gives this error:
    Error reported by winsock driver: Unknown error: 288

    Thanks and any help is appreciated.

    What is agent? Have you tried using SocksCap(free for personal use) instead of FreeCap?

    Agent is a news/mail reader.

    I've found that for some reason sockifying news readers with freecap doesnt work. You need sockcap.
