  • Description: Allows using TCP clients from behind the firewall, making the firewall transparent to the user. Very good package, allows one to access hosts and services beyond the firewall transparently, as if firewall didn't
  • Thus:st. Unfortunately, supports TCP only. Thus: telnet, ftp, gopher, whois, finger, Mosaic can benefit from SOCKS; but Xarchie cannot yet. 239839 socks-linux-src.tgz
