I would like to use a socks5 proxy (with authentication) with some programs. I found proxychains. I installed this and added my proxyIP, port, user and password to
/etc/proxychains.conf. A test like
proxychains wget google.com failed (timeout).

The proxy works. I tested with proxyfire in winXP. What is the problem? Did I forget something? Do you know an alternative?
