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.
