It took me some time to find out that the page fails to load when a socks 5 proxy is active. Or maybe any kind of HTTP proxy. It could be interesting for the readers to know maybe. Don’t think this remark belongs to the errata stuff, so I post it here. This really is a specific problem but it could happen to others. In my case, the socks 5 proxying is done by SSH. So I have little room to experiment with sniffing.

I forgot to mention that the problem occurs with the very first example in the book.

Thanks Ludovic. I agree that this isn’t errata but appreciate you pointing it out here in case others have the same problem.

I do not have a socks5 proxy or any other proxies for that matter active and cannot get the first example in the book to load anything. I have all of the connections correctly configured, but there the simplebrowser just doesn’t…browse. :P

I’m on Snow Leopard with the newest version of the developer tools and am not sure what went wrong.
