class SOCKSSocket

SOCKS is an Internet protocol that routes packets between a client and a server through a proxy server. SOCKS5, if supported, additionally provides authentication so only authorized users may access a server.

Public Class Methods

new(host, port) → socket click to toggle source

Opens a SOCKS connection to host via the SOCKS server.

The SOCKS server configuration varies by implementation

When using the Dante libsocks/libsocksd implementation it is configured as SOCKS_SERVER env var.

See: manpages.debian.org/testing/dante-client/socksify.1.en.html for full env variable support.
