Dear Mr. Yutaka,
Thanks for your reply. I started DeleGate with the following parameters
SERVER=nntp://newsserver SSLTUNNEL proxy-ip:port
In my news reader, I pointed host name and port to that of DeleGate. When I
gave some request on my news reader, the following message appeared on the
DeleGate console --
ERROR protocol inhibited: SSLTUNNEL
Therefore it seems, the HTTP proxy on my network does'nt support HTTP
If you can think of anything I can do to access NNTP newsgroups through a
HTTP proxy, please let me know.
