Hi,

I have a webdav server configured as a hidden service reachable using a .onion address.

I downloaded Cyberduck for Mac, configured it to use system proxy settings, and configured Mac system Proxies to use a local privoxy+tor setup for http.

If I try to connect to my hidden webdav server Cyberduck terminates the connection attempt with a DNS Error.

I didn't check through the code, but the problem seems to be caused by Cyberduck trying to resolve the host name using dns instead of passing the name directly to the http proxy.

If this is the case, please fix Cyberduck to skip dns resolution when an http proxy is configured.

Thank you!

It is correct that we do try to resolve the hostname before attempting to connect to the remote host.

As a workaround you could possibly add an entry to /etc/hosts.

Hi David,

may I ask you why, in your opinion, people use a proxy to access some resources?

Thank you,

Luca
