     socksify -	runtime	socksification of selected programs

     The shell script socksify is meant	to  aid	 in  using  socks
     with  already compiled dynamic binaries.  This works by set-
     ting the LD_PRELOAD environment variable to  libdsocks.   It
     will  then	 attempt  to  wrap  all	networking-related system

     When used the script can socksify a program by  simply  pre-
     fixing  the  given	 program  and it's arguments with the the
     socksify script, like in the example below.

     $ socksify	ftp ftp.example.org

     The socksify script, and the Dante	socks library used by the
     socksify  script,	can  interpret	several	environment vari-

	  Gives	the name of  the  socks.conf  file.   Default  is
	  /etc/socks.conf,  unless  it was changed when	compiling
	  the Dante libsocks libraries.

	  Creating a socks.conf	is the	recommended  way  to  use
	  socksify, but	socksify can also be used for most simple
	  configurations without any socks.conf	file, as long  as
	  the  proxy server to use is set in one of the	supported
	  environment variables.

	  Enables debug	logging.  The value  given  should  be	a
	  number,  one	or  up,	indicating the level of	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 nowhere.

	  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

	  These	variables allow	the address of the server  to  be
	  specified  without  using  a	socks.conf  file.   If	a
	  socks.conf-file is present, it is  ignored  if  any  of
	  these	variables are set.

	  The accepted	format	is  <ipaddress>:<port>.	  If  the
	  SOCKS_SERVER	value  is set, it indicates the	specified
	  server supports all socks versions supported by  Dante.
	  If  if either	of the other two variables are used, they
	  indicate the	given  socks  server  supports	only  the
	  corresponding	 socks	version,  v4 or	v5.  Note that if
	  the socks server requires any	form  of  authentication,
	  you  need  to	use SOCKS5_SERVER, as v4 does not support

	  This variable	can be used to specify the location of	a
	  HTTP	proxy supporting the connect request.  The format
	  used	   to	  specify     a	    HTTP     proxy     is

	  This variable	can be used to specify the location of	a
	  UPNP	enabled	 IGD  router.	There  are three possible
	  value	for this variable: a full URL, the interface name
	  the  router  is reachable via, or the	value "broadcast"
	  to search for	the IGD	on all appropriate interfaces.

     Note that if any of the above environment	variables,  indicating
	  proxy	 server	to use are set,	the Dante client will not
	  parse	the socks.conf file.

	  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	 applica-
	  tion to socksify needs threadlocking or not.

	  If this is set to "yes", the client  will  fallback  to
	  attempting  a	 direct	 connection  if	 the  proxy route
	  fails.  The default is is "no".
