MWG 7.6 ProtocolDetector for SOCKS-Connections


We use SOCKS-Proxy for handling SFTP connections. Yesterday i tried to implement the ProtocolDetector for the SOCKS-Connections.

When I'm looking in the manual of MWG 7.6 on page 99:

it says:

"ProtocolDetector.DetectedProtocol — This property can be used to detect the embedded protocol

that is followed in web traffic under the SOCKS protocol, for example, HTTP or HTTPS.

Its value is the protocol name in string format. When the embedded protocol cannot be detected,

the string is empty."

However, the ProtocolDetector always return "TCP" as string. No matter if I use Chrome over Socks5 or FileZilla over Socks5.

Any idea if we can use the ProtocolDetector as mentioned in the manual? There is a lack of information on the ProtocolDetector - e.g. what return values are possible.
