       connect-proxy — connect over SOCKS4/5 proxy


       connect-proxy  [-dnhst45]   [-R resolve ]  [-p local-port ]  [-w secs ]
       [-H [user@]proxy-server[:port]] ]   [-S  [user@]socks-server[:port]]  ]
       [-T proxy-server[:port] ]  [-c telnet-proxy-command ]  [host]  [port]


       connect-proxy open connection over SOCKS4/5 proxies

       Please,  note  that  any  HTTP-Proxy  tunnel  won’t  work with content-
       inspection firewall (unless using SSL).


       -H        specifies a hostname and port number of the http proxy server
                 to  relay.  If  port  is omitted, 80 is used. You can specify
                 this value in the environment variable  HTTP_PROXY  and  pass
                 the -h option to use it.

       -S        specifies the hostname and port number of the SOCKS server to
                 relay.  Like -H, port number can be omitted and  the  default
                 is  1080.  You  can  also  specify  this  value  pair  in the
                 environment variable SOCKS5_SERVER and give the -s option  to
                 use it.

       -4        specifies  SOCKS  relaying  and indicates protocol version to
                 use.  It is valid only when used with ’-s’ or ’-S’.   Default
                 is ’-5’ (protocol version 5)

       -R        method  to  resolve  the  hostname.  Three keywords ("local",
                 "remote", "both") or dot-notation IP address are  acceptable.
                 The  keyword "both" means, "Try local first, then remote". If
                 a dot-notation IP address is  specified,  use  this  host  as
                 nameserver. The default is "remote" for SOCKS5 or "local" for
                 others. On SOCKS4 protocol, remote resolving method ("remote"
                 and "both") requires protocol 4a supported server.

       -p        will  forward  a local TCP port instead of using the standard
                 input and output.

       -P        same to ’-p’ except keep remote session. The program  repeats
                 waiting   the   port  with  holding  remote  session  without
                 disconnecting. To connect the remote  session,  send  EOF  to
                 stdin or kill the program.

       -w        timeout in seconds for making connection with TARGET host.

       -d        used  for  debug.  If you fail to connect, use this and check
                 request to and response from server.


       To use proxy, this example is  for  SOCKS5  connection  to  connect  to
       "host" at port 25 via SOCKS5 server on "firewall" host.

       connect-proxy -S firewall host 25

       SOCKS5_SERVER=firewall; export SOCKS5_SERVER; connect-proxy -s host 25

       For a HTTP-PROXY connection:

       connect-proxy -H proxy-server:8080  host 25

       HTTP_PROXY=proxy-server:8080;  export HTTP_PROXY; connect-proxy -h host

       To forward a local port, for example to use ssh:

       connect-proxy -p 5550 -H proxy-server:8080 host 22 ssh -l user

       To use it along ssh transparently:

       # file://~/.ssh/config
       # not using proxy on lan
       Host 192.*
       ProxyCommand connect-proxy %h %p
       # mandatory to access the internet
       Host *
       ProxyCommand connect-proxy -H proxyserver:8080  %h %p

       Or for all users ( /etc/ssh/ssh_config )




       ssh (1).
