well...there seems to be (theoretically) a solution for you, by compiling irssi with socks support....was it like: "--with-socks" (without quotes)? I'm definetely not sure about this...

I just found this one with the aid of Google:

http://www.irssi.org/?page=docs&doc=startup-HOWTO

try search the page with "SOCKS". that tells the same thing I wrote above..so I remembered right. try it out...

Well there *are* no docs about that socks support.. when you compiled it in, you can somehow use it.. I don't know how.. guess you could play with proxy_string or proxy_string_after. I'm not so familiar with the SOCKS protocol.

I am using an HTTP/SQUID proxy with irssi.. .
Settings look like:

12:11 use_proxy = ON
12:11 proxy_string = CONNECT %s:%d
12:11
12:11
12:11 proxy_string_after =
12:11 proxy_port = 80
12:11 proxy_address = proxy.onlyforme.net

19:03:27 use_proxy = ON
19:03:27 proxy_string = CONNECT %s:%d
19:03:27 proxy_string_after =
19:03:27 proxy_port = 1080
19:03:27 proxy_address = proxy.socks.serv.com

I have managed with these settings to almost ... connect to irc server... when i connect it says this :
19:04:40 !irc.dal.net *** Looking up your hostname...
19:04:40 !irc.dal.net *** Checking Ident
19:04:40 !irc.dal.net *** Found your hostname
19:04:40 !irc.dal.net *** No Ident response
19:05:17 -!- ERROR Closing Link: 0.0.0.0 (Ping timeout)
19:05:17 -!- Irssi: Connection lost to irc.le.lt

I guess serv has to have ident server or no? It is strange couse i can connect with xchat to irc serv but irssi ends with error ...
