arbitrary TCP connection redirector to a SOCKS or HTTPS proxy server

Redsocks 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 TCP.
