What version of Indy? 9 had limited proxy support.  10 is much better (more proxy types).

Is it actually a Socks proxy you're connecting to?  If not, then don't use SocksInfo, use ProxySettings.  If it doesn't require authentication, don't put anything in the Username and Password in ProxySettings.

It might help to see the code that doesn't work.
