I have a socks 5 proxy set up using ssh on a vps. Recently clients have been unable to connect using any chromium based browser (specifically chrome, opera and vivaldi). I'm assuming its because of a recent update but am not sure. The latest versions which I downloaded to test all don't work. The instructions that used to work are here: https://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/network-stack/socks-proxy For some reason, it only affects some websites but not others. google works, as does whatismyip.com. Yahoo and ebay were two examples that don't work. As far as I can tell, it seems that the connections start, it receives some data (on the order of hundreds of bytes), then just stops receiving data.
Even more strangely, the proxy works perfectly fine on Firefox and MS Edge.
I'm pretty lost at this point. My next step is to try older versions of chromium, but am hoping someone else might have an idea.
