Proxy daemons? Anonymous 01/26/2018 (Fri) 03:37:00 [Preview] No. 12293
Looking to setup a socks4/5 proxy for testing and experimentation. Looking to see if anyone has any preferences or recommendations.

This will be for a low user count (2-3), private setup. I don't mind dropping in some enterprise level monster meant for handling T-carrier levels of activity, but I ain't gonna be stressing it anywhere like that.

Current choices boiled down to dante or haproxy. I'm still open to suggestions.

OS: Debian Stretch.

What I'm not looking for: ssh tunneling, iptables forwarding. Yes, I can do either as a quick and simple fix. No, I'm not interested.

Maybe WireGuard. They have SOCKS5 proxies... but I don't know if they will be suitable for what you want to do.

>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.

In case anyone was interested, Dante was the winner. It required no additional dependencies beyond what was already installed.

As far as I'm concerned this may as well now be a proxy general thread. Off topic commentary welcome.
