Package: empathy
Version: 0.23.3-3
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice if empathy (or rather telepathy I guess) worked with a
socks program like tsocks, so you can still use jabber/xmpp in
firewalled environments over a transparent SSH socks proxy (ssh -D
<portnumber>, configure tsocks to connect to localhost with that

Hate to say it, but it just works with gossip.

Please reassign as appropriate, I am no specialist on telepathy


PS: btw, can you use jabber.org on a HTML port?  If so, can you
configure empathy to do so via an http proxy?  That would work as well I
