Hi,
Can anyone explain what does this setting affect on? It can be found in "HTTP Policy"->"Proxy Server"->"Advanced options" group box, but absent in manual. One boy said it turns using of SOCKS on. Is it really so?

Wouldn't this simply mean exactly what is says? That with this setting enabled, the non-transparent proxy allows connections to any TCP port (instead of just the regular web ports, I assume)?

D'you mean not only 3128 but any TCP port from clientTO PROXY? Thanx. I've understood the idea. If it is correct vertion.

Wrong idea : any TCP port from client TO PROXY doesn't work. Sad

Well, sure, the connection to the proxy server (being KWF) is fixed to port 3128 (default, you could change this). It's the destination port that this setting deals with (if I'm correct).

The KWF proxy only supports HTTP(s) traffic, so that would be destination ports 80 and 443. But some websites run their HTTP(S) services on different ports than these default ports (such as the HTTP web interface of the KWF, running on non-standard port 4080).

I guess that the KWF proxy only allows connections to the default HTTP(S) destination ports 80 and 443, UNLESS you select the option "Allow connection to any TCP port". Then it would also allow HTTP(S) traffic TO different ports.
