Error 56 is the same error I got before this correction. But I was wrong to
send the ending 0 byte. Although it seemed to solve my problem of error 56,
but after that "correction" the data sent to the server through the proxy
was never accepted. The real solution was to delete the line completely :)
My program is now working through the proxy with 7.10.7.
