Is there any way to set up the integrated Jabber support to connect via a proxy? I use a jabber server external to my workplace, and the firewall here is fairly restrictive. What I generally to is SSH to a host I control outside the firewall and use the client's -D option to create a SOCKS4 proxy. This can then be used to make arbitrary TCP connections.
The SOCKS 4 protocol, at least, is very simple; would supporting it or some other proxying solution be a possibility? Also, does anyone else think this might be a useful feature?
