Upstream connections


ProxyChains is a UNIX program, that hooks network-related libc functions in DYNAMICALLY LINKED programs via a preloaded DLL (dlsym(), LD_PRELOAD) and redirects the connections through SOCKS4a/5 or HTTP proxies. It supports TCP only (no UDP/ICMP etc). The way it works is basically a HACK; so it is possible that it doesn't work with your program, especially when it's a script, or starts numerous processes like background daemons or uses dlopen() to load "modules" (bug in glibc dynlinker). It should work with simple compiled (C/C++) dynamically linked programs though.
