socks(8) Universal proxy server socks(8)
socks - SOCKS 4/4.5/5 gateway service
socks [-d] [-l[[@]logfile]] [-pport] [-iinternal_ip] [-eexternal_ip]
socks is SOCKS server. It supports SOCKSv4, SOCKSv4.5 (extension to v4
for server side name resolution) and SOCKSv5. SOCKSv5 specification
allows both outgoing and reverse TCP connections and UDP portmapping.
-I Inetd mode. Standalone service only.
-d Daemonise. Detach service from console and run in the
-t Be silenT. Do not log start/stop/accept error records.
-u Never ask for username authentication
-e External address. IP address of interface proxy should initiate
connections from. External IP must be specified if you need
incoming connections. By default system will deside which
address to use in accordance with routing table.
-i Internal address. IP address proxy accepts connections to. By
default connection to any interface is accepted. It's usually
-p Port. Port proxy listens for incoming connections. Default is
-l Log. By default logging is to stdout. If logfile is specified
logging is to file. Under Unix, if '@' preceeds logfile, syslog
is used for logging.
You should use client with SOCKS support or use some socksification
support (for example SocksCAP or FreeCAP). Configure client to use
internal_ip and port. SOCKS allows to use almost any application
protocol without limitation. This implementation also allows to open
priviledged port on server (if socks has sufficient privileges). If you
need to control access use 3proxy(8) instead.
