Thanks a lot Moritz, I figured the option placement later on, I
thought it applied to the whole command.
And you're right, all is done so that I can't stream from inside the
company to outside the company... except the company now wants to
stream outside.
I will try to get a SOCKS proxy installed... and will go on with my
redsocks2 experiments (it worked on one machine) with the CONNECT
proxy command.

Best regards,
