net-proxy / redsocks

Transparent redirector of any TCP connection to proxy

Official package sites : http://darkk.net.ru/redsocks/ ·

Redirect any TCP connection to a SOCKS or HTTPS proxy server 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.

net-proxy/redsocks: Restrict tests
Requires building a docker container, which is probably more involved than I am willing to support. Closes: https://bugs.gentoo.org/623442

net-proxy/redsocks: Ship man page, init files, etc
Also move config file to /etc/redsocks.conf (there's a single file, no need for a directory) and add a redsocks user and group.
