Error creating socket: Connection failed: Operation now in progress

If you are behind a proxy server, you need to configure the framework to 
use that proxy for the connection. The user guide mentions the proxy 
support (briefly) at:

Assuming this is a standard HTTP proxy, the syntax from msfconsole is:
msf> setg Proxies http:<ip of proxy>:<port of proxy>
msf> save

(you will need to then unsetg Proxies when using it from the LAN)

If this is a SOCKS4 compatible proxy server, just replace http with 
'socks4'. The framework does not support proxies that require user 
authentication at this time (MSProxy with NTLM, etc).

We stress-tested the proxy support a long time ago, but it is one of the 
lesser-used features and may still have some bugs.
