DESCRIPTION

The simpleproxy program acts as a simple tcp proxy. It opens listening socket on local machine and forwards any connection to the remote host.

OPTIONS

simpleproxy accepts following options:

-V
Version information.
-v
Makes simpleproxy to write activity information to syslog or stderr.
-7
Makes simpleproxy to strip 8th bit.
-i
Use this flag when starting simpleproxy from INETD.
-d
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.
