Readme for socks-0.5.3

[back to package description]

Socks

Haskell library implementation of the SOCKS 5 protocol.

TODO

  • more socks authentification methods: only no authentification is supported for now.
  • support of socks' bind for server to client connection (like FTP).
  • add socks4a and socks4 support.

Usage

See Example.hs for really simple and straighforward example. The main api is only 2 calls:

  • socksConnectAddr which connect to a SockAddr (SockAddrInet or SockAddrInet6). The name resolution is left on client side.
  • socksConnectName which connect to a fully qualified domain name "www.example.com". The proxy server will do the name resolution.
