Hi I need to build an application which has an option for the users to connect via a socks proxy. How can I determine the proxy speed (bytes/second) so I can tell the user that his proxy is running slowly.
I know I have socket options setSoTimeout but it's not working because I have transfer through the socket but the transfer rate is very slow.

Thank you
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
