socks5d - start or stop the SOCKS5 daemon
socks5d [on password [port]] | [off]


Command socks5d on starts a NAT32 SOCKS5 daemon. A password must be specified. The daemon listens at the specified TCP port number (default 1080).

Command socks5d off stops the SOCKS5 daemon. Any established connections are unaffected. New connections cannot be established.

The SOCKS5 daemon responds to TCP connection requests arriving at the Windows IP addresses listed in the socks5d on command response.

To terminate an established session, use the command:

kill socks5p
To change the password for future sessions, use the password command.

Any SOCKS5 username is acceptable, as only the password is checked.

The SOCKS5 daemon has been tested with WinSCP. Non-passive FTP transfers work correctly.

SOCKS5 need only be used with applications that do not work behind a NAT or a firewall.

The maximum number of SOCKS5 sessions is currently set to 64.

The Port Number used for TCP listen requests is fixed at: 5555 + (session_number - 1)
