Please provide solution on how to use TElClientIndySSLIOHandlerSocket with SOCKS 4/4A/5

I get connection closed gracefully when using with TIdHTTP. With OpenSSL this doesn't happen. I am using XE4 Update 1.

Hello David,

Thank you for getting in touch with us.

We will try to reproduce the issue locally and get back to you shortly.

A side question, Is there anything that forces you to use the Indy I/O handler descendant and not the `native` TElHTTPSClient class, which is more powerful and feature-rich and for which we are fully responsible?

You can use software such as CCProxy to test various proxy implementations. SOCKS4/5. By the way HTTP proxies work with TElClientIndySSLIOHandlerSocket.

Indeed the problem exists.

Please go to SBIndyIOHandler10.pas:TElClientIndySSLIOHandlerSocket.ConnectClient method and change its code next way to fix it:

procedure TElClientIndySSLIOHandlerSocket.ConnectClient;
  LPassThrough: Boolean;
  LPassThrough := fPassThrough;
  fPassThrough := True;
    inherited ConnectClient;
    fPassThrough := LPassThrough;

  if not Passthrough then

This improvement will be also included into the next SBB build.
