I use a socks4 proxy in chrome (ssh tunnel via putty listens on localhost:60000) which works fine for all websites with the default http ports 80 and 443. What does NOT work is accessing websites over a custom port, especially tested for https. Example:
https://google.com # works via socks4 proxy https://example.com:8443 # does not work via socks4 proxy Chrome says: "ERR_CONNECTION_RESET"
When I switch to another proxy (http, not socks) or use the direct connection it works like a charm. Same for FF, btw. Proxy settings in chrome are configured with ProxySwitchySharp
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here?
