Virtual Interface linked to a SOCKS Proxy

2 posts in this topic

I am looking for a Linux program that creates a virtual interface device that transmits all data through a SOCKS proxy. That way certain applications that don't have proxy support built in can use this virtual device that does all the SOCKS proxy work behind the scenes. I am certain that programs like these exist, however, I am not sure what this would be called.

There's an easier way. Programs can hijack the socket and connect calls and go through the socks proxy.

If you want to do it with interface, take a look at the TUN and TAP virtual interfaces. They can do what you need. There's probably software already out there that does this, it's a pretty simple thing.

However, take a look at the dsocks software. It sounds like it does just what you're looking for.
