Sametime Developers Toolkit 3.0 Windows NT/2000

I have been having difficulty enabling a sametime applet to work through a proxy.

I am using the HttpConnection class of the SameTime 3.0 toolkit; Here is a snippet of code from our applet:

HttpConnection[] connections = { new HttpConnection(80, 60000, STproxyName, 80)};

port - The port to use for HTTP connections.
timeout - The timeout period to use when attempting to connect, in milliseconds.
proxyHost - The proxy to connect to, or null for none.
proxyPort - The proxy port.

In the example above, STproxyName is the domain name of the proxy server, pulled from a resource file (i.e. "")

The problem seems to arise from the mapping rules of our proxy server (IBM Edge Server 2.0). A sample rule appears below:

proxy /*

For content, this directive has the desired effect, but in the case of the applet, the applet connection fails if a protocol is specified - it will only work if you pass the domain name (

Unfortunately, the proxy directive requires the specification of a protocol.

I am running a little thin on fresh ideas in regards to this issue, and I was hoping someone out there has tackled a similar problem in the past...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

p.s. interestingly enough, the ST3.0 Win32 client can connect through the proxy just fine, but I have not been able to determine how the connection is made.
