Hi Yutaka.

Thanks again for all the effort. Your patch works and your explanation
actually helped a lot.
In another message from you, you said the die VSAP protocol could wrap
SOCKS if necessary.
Does this mean that my SOCKS client could talk with a VSAP server and
for example use the CONNECT methods?
If so, do I need to modify the client in some way or do I just turn it
on with a server option?
