tsocks - Shell wrapper to simplify the use of the tsocks(8) library to
transparently allow an application to use a SOCKS proxy
tsocks [application [application's arguments]]
or tsocks [-on|-off]
tsocks is a wrapper between the tsocks library and the application what
you would like to run socksified.
[application [application's arguments]]
run the application as specified with the environment
(LD_PRELOAD) set such that tsocks(8) will transparently proxy
SOCKS connections in that program
this option adds or removes tsocks(8) from the LD_PRELOAD
environment variable. When tsocks(8) is in this variable all
executed applications are automatically socksified. If you want
to use this function, you HAVE to source the shell script from
yours, like this: "source /usr/bin/tsocks" or ".
". tsocks -on" -- add the tsocks lib to LD_PRELOAD (don't forget
the leading dot!)
". tsocks -off" -- remove the tsocks lib from LD_PRELOAD (don't
forget the leading dot!)
show the current value of the LD_PRELOAD variable
<without any argument>
create a new shell with LD_PRELOAD including tsocks(8).
This script was created by Tamas SZERB <firstname.lastname@example.org> for the debian
package of tsocks. It (along with this manual page) have since been
adapted into the main tsocks project and modified.
