desproxy-socksserver - Using desproxy with dynamic connections
desproxy-socksserver proxy_host proxy_port local_port
You can see that for every application that needs to be un-proxyzed you have to
start a desproxy program. That is OK if you are using irc, ssh or other
application that always connects to the same server. But if you need to
dynamically establish TCP connections it's impossible to follow that path.
That's why desproxy-socksserver, which is just a desproxy implementation of a
Socks 5 Server. A Socks 5 Server is like a "TCP proxy": you just
request a TCP connection and the Socks 5 Server does the work for you. Of
course, client applications need to have support for Socks 5 Server.
