Don’t forget about (your) SOCKS!

9. Feb 2013

If you are an developer working on your piece of software and thinking about adding proxy capabilities you may think supporting HTTP proxies is just fine.

Please think about adding support for SOCKS proxies and depending how you implement it add an option to make the remote address resolve DNS requests.

Read about the SOCKS protocol on Wikipedia.

If your software has already HTTP proxy support please consider adding SOCKS proxy support, too. Thank you.
