       redsocks - redirect any TCP connection to a SOCKS or HTTP proxy


       redsocks [options]


       redsocks  is  a daemon running on the local system, that will transparently tunnel any TCP
       connection via a remote SOCKS4, SOCKS5 or HTTP proxy server. It uses the system firewall's
       redirection  facility  to  intercept TCP connections, thus the redirection is system-wide,
       with fine-grained control, and does not depend on LD_PRELOAD libraries.

       Redsocks supports tunneling TCP connections and UDP packets. It has authentication support
       for both, SOCKS and HTTP proxies.

       Also  included  is  a small DNS server returning answers with the "truncated" flag set for
       any UDP query, forcing the resolver to use TCP.
