Description : Daemon that transparently tunnels TCP connections through a SOCKS/HTTPS proxy
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.
