When you use a generic proxy you have 1 technical problem and 2 security
A generic proxy cannot handle services such as ftp (opening new
connections during a session)
You cannot be sure someone won't use it as a tunnel for something
You have to rely on the server you're relaying the traffic to, and wish
it has no security hole......... :o)
