As the title suggests, I'm wondering If it's technically possible for a PHP script to act as an SOCKS proxy. If not what are the technical limitations?
I have access to a paid hosting which provides me with executing PHP scripts and a domain name is connected to the host. (e.g. example.com).
Is there any SOCKS proxy written in PHP so I may upload it a directory at host (e.g. example.com/proxy) and configure a client (like Firefox) to connect via the proxy.
- cURL and other extensions are supported.
- I'm not yet sure about SSH access.
- I have seen projects like php-proxy or glype but These are not things I need because they can be used only by browsing proxy's homepage. (They are web proxies, But I need a proxy server)
