Which version of Windows are you using?
Your log seems to show that a socket is not inherited from the parent
process to a child process, which might be possible on non WinNT
(as Win95/98/Me). Or you might have a firewall or AntiVirus software
which is blocking the inheritance.
If so, DeleGate will not work for any usage not only for HTTPS/HTTP gateway.
I uploaded 9.6.3-pre2 at ftp://ftp.delegate.org/pub/DeleGate/alpha/bin-latest9/
in which I modified the socket handle of socketpair() to be marked as
inheritable by default. It might solve your problem.
And you will need STLS="fcl" to make it HTTP/HTTPS gateway.
Also ssleay32.dll and libeay32.dll are necessary to be placed at the same
directory with dgx_x_x.exe (for example), downloaded from
The whole log of DeleGate including the one during its startup time will
be useful what is wrong.
