One Reply to “:: Linux : socks proxy via ssh”

  1. another relevant solution here is tsocks.

    this small library designed to handle SOCKS5 communication transparently for softwares can’t do so.

    after you estabish the socks tunnel by ssh, start tsocks:
    tsocks wget //…
    tsocks will translate wget’s connect() syscalls making it socks-compatible 🙂

    (not sure if wget be already socks-able…)
