question on use raw socket to a implement HTTP Proxy Server


I am trying to implement a HTTP proxy server using raw socket.

I create a alias IP address on eth1:0 on my linux box

I opened a raw socket as:


and binds to and port 3080

bind(fd, (struct sockaddr *) &addr, sizeof(addr));

However when I use netstat it shows the port as 255 as the following:

raw 0 0* 7 7469/test-http-proxy

I changed the Firefox connection settings to Manual proxy configuration as:

HTTP Proxy: Port:3080

I got this error from Firefox, and I did not receive any packets from the raw socket.

The browser is configured to use a proxy server, but the proxy refused a connection.

* Is the browser's proxy configuration correct? Check the settings and try again.
* Does the proxy service allow connections from this network?
* Still having trouble? Consult your network administrator or Internet provider for assistance.

Any ideas or pointers are appreciated.
