New versions of RealAudio can use HTTP to request RA clips from sites, but
the RealAudio application-layer proxy operates on port 1090. It was built
using the TIS firewall toolkit, and is freely distributable. Since it

internet, it sounds like you should just turn off proxy functionality for
theDJ player. No?
