redsocks - redirect any TCP connection to a SOCKS or HTTP proxy
is a daemon running on the local system, that will transparently
tunnel any TCP connection via a remote SOCKS4, SOCKS5 or HTTP proxy server. It
uses the system firewall's redirection facility to intercept TCP connections,
thus the redirection is system-wide, with fine-grained control, and does not
depend on LD_PRELOAD libraries.
Redsocks supports tunneling TCP connections and UDP packets. It has
authentication support for both, SOCKS and HTTP proxies.
Also included is a small DNS server returning answers with the
"truncated" flag set for any UDP query, forcing the resolver to use
- -p pidfile
- Write the process ID to pidfile.
- -c config
- Use config as configuration file.
- Test configuration file syntax.
