SYNOPSISsimpleproxy [-7] [-v] [-V] [-d] [-i] -P <POP3 users file> -L [<local host>:]<local port> -R <remote host>:<remote port> -S <proxy host>:<proxy port>
DESCRIPTIONThe simpleproxy program acts as a simple tcp proxy. It opens listening socket on local machine and forwards any connection to the remote host.
simpleproxy accepts following options:
- Version information.
- Makes simpleproxy to write activity information to syslog or stderr.
- Makes simpleproxy to strip 8th bit.
- Use this flag when starting simpleproxy from INETD.
- By default simpleproxy does not detach itself from control terminal and writes all messages to stderr. This option will detach it from terminal and make it write messages to syslog.
- -L [<local host>:]<local port>
- Local host and port name or number to bind for listening. Host name is optional.
- -R <remote host>:<remote port>
- Remote host and port name or number
- -P <POP3 users list>
- If specified, simpleproxy will load list of users from the <filename> (one per line). After this it will be forwarding POP3 sessions only if client trying to authenificate as this user.
- -S <proxy host>:<proxy port>
- HTTPS proxy server host and port name or number.
- -a <HTTP Auth User>:<HTTP Auth Password>
- Authenticate to the HTTPS proxy server with the given userid and password. This option performs BASIC HTTP authentication as specified in RFC 2617. Used only in conjunction with -S.
- -t <trace file>
If specified, simpleproxy will dump all data that passes through connection to the specified file.
BUGSOnly tcp ports are supported.
