      ProxyChains, Proxy Chaining Tool (Linking)


     <http://proxychains.sourceforge.net/> Proxychains is a command line tool
    for Linux and Solaris that allows TCP tunneling trough one or multiple
    (chained) HTTP proxies.

    The program supports the following proxies:
     * SOCKS4
     * SOCKS5

    In addition, the following authentication types:
     * SOCKS - "user/pass"
     * HTTP - "basic"

    When to use it?
    1) When the only way to get "outside" from your LAN is through proxy
    2) When you are behind restrictive firewall that filters outgoing
    connections to some ports
    3) When you want to use two (or more) proxies in chain: like: your_host
    <--> proxy1 <--> proxy2 <--> target_host
    4) When you want to "proxify" some program with no proxy support built-in
    (like telnet)
