SOCKD(1)			    socksrc			      SOCKD(1)

NAME
       sockd - Socks 5 proxy server

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/sockd {[start] |	[stop] | [restart]}

DESCRIPTION
       The sockd server	allows applications behind a firewall to establish
       outside network connections. The	application makes a connection to the
       sockd server, authenticates itself (if required), then sockd
       establishes a network connection	on behalf of the application, then
       transparently transfers the data	between	the two	connections.

       This Socks 5 server does	not yet	support	UDP connections.  sockd
       supports	TCP connections	only.

       "sockd start" starts the	Socks 5	server,	reading	its configuration from
       /usr/local/etc/socksrc.	"sockd stop" shuts down	the Socks server,
       terminating any active connections.  "sockd restart" re-reads the
       server configuration from /usr/local/etc/socksrc	without	affecting any
       existing	network	connections.

	   Note
	   Not all configuration settings are updated by sockd restart.	Only
	   changes to the "port", "anonproxy", "authproxy", and	"prefork"
	   settings in /usr/local/etc/sockrc will take effect. Changes to
	   other settings require a sockd stop,	followed by sockd start	to
	   take	effect.
