Public Class ProxySocket _
	Implements ISocket, ISocketExt, IDisposable
public class ProxySocket : ISocket, 
	ISocketExt, IDisposable


This class is suitable for extending your client applications with the ability to connect through proxies.

This class is limited to operations supported by proxies - it is not a replacement for the Socket. This means it is perfect for writing clients, but useless for writing servers.

Only connection-oriented protocols are supported at the moment
