Symptoms

Publish from source to target fails or takes a very long time to complete. When failing, the following error is seen on source logs:

We are publishing through a proxy, configured in publish destination argument PROXYSERVER & PROXYPORT. Same behaviour exists when proxy is configured in futuretense.ini properties cs.mirrorproxyserver & cs.mirrorproxyserverport. As this is a production environment, the source and target machines have been firewalled for security such that source cannot talk to target directly, and must go through the proxy. Source is allowed to talk to the proxy, and the proxy is allowed to talk to the target.

Also "netstat -an" and other monitoring has shown that there are attempted connections being made direct from CS source to CS target, that are not going through the proxy.
