>Makum wit VPN shenanigans!
Looking into it, WireGuard fits the bill with socks/5 integration. The other features are interesting, although I wasn't looking to offer VPN services. This does tempt me with ideas for a future project though. Maybe, I can put one of my idling cloud hosts to better use? Something to look into.
The current setup is a Debian Squid3 proxy/various other services/firewall/gateway. The immediate problem is certain peers bitching at me about being forced to use browser based webmail, instead of Outlook/Thunderbird. I can allow them to punch through the firewall, but this is an opportunity to dive into the world of socks proxying. Aside from Imap access, pairing them with a socks proxy will give me a more consistent and controllable setup for what I see coming down the road.
Another aside, Squid apparently does socks on an experimental basis with recompiling. Not interested.
