#11413 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add option to use AIM/ICQ DIM/FT proxy

Description

Add an option to use the libpurple preference "Always use AIM/ICQ proxy server for\nfile transfers and direct IM (slower,\nbut does not reveal your IP address)".

This is an account boolean known as always_use_rv_proxy. The code's already there; we should present the UI for it (since it's immensely useful for users where discovery will never work).

(In [26198]) Adds two Oscar UI options:

  • Always use proxy server for FT/DIM (Fixes #11413)
  • Use SSL for connections (Fixes #9553) - This appears to be a little bit buggy - once you set "use_ssl", the account has a really hard top stopping using it. I'm confident "use_ssl" is 0, but it's still negotiating an SSL connection. This is classified as "experimental" in libpurple, last I saw.

I intend to go back and make the Oscar account view > an AIM and ICQ account view, since this is duplicating code between the Oscar and ICQ account views. The Oscar view expects a profile (should go in AIM), with the SSL/proxy stuff in the general Oscar view.
