Hi Peter. Great post. I have been working on something for a couple of days. Maybe you can help. I want to run a SOCKS proxy on a Linux machine which listens on port 1080 and forwards all incoming data to another SOCKS proxy running on How can I do that?

You can't do that easily. You need to do something called proxy chaining. It will look like this:

[Your computer]->[Linux running socks5 on 1080]->[ running socks5 on 22]

What you'll need to do is open a connection from [Your computer] to [Linux running socks5 on 1080], and then ask this socks5 proxy to open a connection to [ running socks5 on 22]. And now you'll use this connection for your purposes.
