       dante.conf - socks client configuration file syntax


       The  configuration file for the socks client library allow control over logging and server
       selection.  It is divided into two parts; global settings  and  routes.   A  line  can  be
       commented using the standard comment character #.


       The global settings are in the form of a keyword followed by a colon and the value.

       debug  Setting this field to 1 turns on debugging.

              This  value  controls  where  the client library sends logoutput.  It can be either
              syslog, stdout, stderr, a filename, or a combination.  The default is no logging.

              The protocol used to resolve hostnames.  Valid values are udp, tcp and  fake.   The
              default is udp.

              How  long  the  "bad"  marking  of  a route should remain set before it is removed.
              Default is 300 seconds.

              How many times a route can fail before it is marked as bad.  Default is 1.

              The number of seconds the client will wait for a connect to  the  proxy  server  to
              complete.  The default is 0, indicating the client should use the systems default.


       The routes are specified with a route keyword.  Inside a pair of parenthesis ({}) a set of
       keywords control the behavior  of  the  route.   Each  route  can  contain  three  address
       specifications;  from,  to  and  via.   A  route is selected for a connection based on the
       values within the route block.

       When searching for a route to match the clients request, the library will first look for a
       direct route.  Then for a socks_v4 route, a socks_v5 route, a http route, and lastly for a
       upnp route.

       Depending on how the library is configured and environment variables set (see  the  manual
       for  socksify(1)),  there  may  or  may  not be an automatic fallback to an auto-generated
       direct route if no other route is found.

       The route block can contain the following:

              Each address field can consist of a IP-address (and where  meaningful,  a  netmask,
              separated from the IP-address by a '/' sign.), a hostname, a domainname (designated
              by the leading '.'), or an interfacename (where meaningful).  Each address  can  be
              followed by a optional port specifier.

       from   The route is used only by requests coming from the address given as value.

       to     The route is used only by requests going to the address given as value.

       via    Address of the proxy server that should be used as a gateway for the connection, or
              the special value direct to indicate the connection should be direct rather than go
              via any proxy server.

              In  the  case of upnp, the address can also be the name of the interface to use for
              discovering the upnp controlpoint, if the full url for the IGD is not yet known, or
              the  special  value  broadcast to indicate the client should broadcast for an upnp-
              router on all available network interfaces.

       port   Parameter to from, to and via.  Accepts the keywords  eq/=,  ne/!=,  ge/>=,  le/<=,
              gt/>,  lt/< followed by a number.  A portrange can also be given as "port <start #>
              - <end #>", which will match all port numbers within the range <start #>  and  <end


              Enables  certain  options for compatibility with broken servers.  Valid values are:
              necgssapi, for compatibility with servers implementing gssapi the NEC socks way.

              The server supports the  given  commands.   Valid  commands  are  bind,  bindreply,
              connect,  udpassociate and udpreply.   The default is all commands supported by the
              protocols set for the route.

              Can be used instead of, or to complement, protocol.

              Which encryption  to  enforce  for  GSSAPI-authenticated  communication.   Possible
              values  are  clear,  integrity,  or  confidentiality.   The  default  is to try for
              confidentially, but accept whatever the server offers except clear, as clear is not
              part of the SOCKS GSSAPI standard.

              Which servicename to use when involving GSSAPI.  Default is "rcmd".

       method List  of  authentication methods the client supports and which to offer the server.
              Currently supported values are none, gssapi, and  username.   The  default  is  all
              supported methods.

              The  protocols the server supports.  Supported values are tcp and udp.  The default
              is all supported protocols.

              The proxy protocols the server supports.  Currently supported values are  socks_v4,
              socks_v5,  http, and upnp.  The default is socks_v4 and socks_v5.  Note that if the
              socks server requires any form of authentication, you need to explicitly  set  this
              to to socks_v5, as v4 does not support authentication.


       See the example directory in the distribution.


              Use the value of SOCKS_USERNAME as the username when doing username authentication.

              Use the value of SOCKS_PASSWORD as the password when doing username authentication.
              Not recommended as other users on the system might be able to see your password.

              If this variable is set to "no", the client will not try to auto-add direct  routes
              for all addresses on the LAN.  The default is to add them.

              If this variable is set, the client will not perform threadlocking.  The default is
              for the client to attempt to figure out  for  itself  whether  the  application  to
              socksify needs threadlocking or not.

       Some additional environment variables are documented in socksify(1).
