proxy chains - redirect connections through proxy servers

Proxy chains force any tcp connection made by any given tcp client to follow through proxy (or proxy chain). It is a kind of proxifier. It acts like sockscap / premeo / eborder driver ( intercepts TCP calls )

This version supports SOCKS4, SOCKS5 and HTTP CONNECT proxy servers. Different proxy types can be mixed in the same chain.


  * Access Internet from behind restrictive firewall.
  * Source IP masquerade.
  * SSH tunneling and forwarding.
  * Dynamic LAN-to-LAN VPN channel.
  * Servers and daemons friendly (works fine with sendmail MTA).

Tags: Implemented in: C, User Interface: Command Line, Networking: VPN or Tunneling, Role: role::program, use::proxying
