[winswitch] server requested 'xor' digest, cowardly...

I've recently succeeded in having a server running xterm, a proxy and a
machine connecting to the proxy. I used for this what is described in
https://xpra.org/trac/wiki/ProxyServer at the section Remote Hosts. What I
want to do now is launching the pplication from the client, so what I did
xpra start :100 --bind-tcp=
on the server. Then
xpra proxy :100 --bind-tcp=
--tcp-auth=allow,filename=./xpra-auth.sdb --socket-dir=/tmp --daemon=no
On the proxy and there is "foo bar nobody nobody ip" in xpra-auth because I
didn't know how to indicate where the server is, the problem that I guess
here is that if you put --tcp-auth=allow the file xpra-auth is ignored
because when I go to the client:
xpra start --tcp-auth=allow tcp://vml-xprabetatest/14501 xterm
I have the following error:
2018-07-31 13:50:22,161 Error: authentication failed:
2018-07-31 13:50:22,161  server requested 'xor' digest, cowardly refusing
to use it without encryption
What can I do ?
Thank you,
