Advanced SOCKS Configuration Dialog Box

Getting there

Configure multiple SOCKS proxy servers in order of preference. When a connection is requested, the client attempts to match the request with these addresses, beginning at the top of the list and moving down. The final line in the list, "Any address on any port", serves as a match for any request and prevents a connection request from being ignored.

To bypass a SOCKS proxy server, select it from the list of destinations, click Change, and select the Do not use SOCKS proxy check box.



Specifies the name or IP address as well as the port number of one or more destination hosts. (Asterisks in an IP address represent wildcard characters.)



Specifies the name or IP address of the SOCKS server associated with the corresponding destination address. When a connection request is made to this destination address, the request must go through the SOCKS server indicated. "(Do not use proxy)" means that a SOCKS server will not be used when connection requests are made to the corresponding destination address.


Proxy User ID

Specifies the user ID associated with a destination address and SOCKS server. User IDs can serve a variety of purposes: identification, definition of special privileges, etc. A user ID may or may not be required by the associated SOCKS server. Check with your system administrator to determine if a user ID is required.
