I've been looking (for the past 6-7 hours) for a fast, free and configurable SOCKS5 server. I haven't found anything that matches my needs. They are either too complicated, too bare-bones or simply buggy as hell.
This is (all) I need:
- I want it to run on Linux (and also OS X, preferably)
- I want it to listen on localhost:8888
- When my app (say
curl --socks5=localhost:8888) requests
http://www.google.com/search?q=asd(or any other url - both http and https), I want it to fetch the page not from google's servers, but from
- Nothing more!
I don't need caching, or anything else. I just want a SOCKS5 server, running locally, which redirects all queries to my own (local) server.
It could be written in C, C++, Python, PHP, Perl, Node.js or any other language. I don't care, as long as it supports my (very limited) needs, or I can easily change the source to make it so.
Thanks a lot
