I am trying to make delegate work as a multiplexed SOCKS tunnel, as
Basically, I want to use 2 servers to relay proxy data efficiently (to
bypass blocking of websites in an oppressive country):
- a server run on a site in OppressiveCountry, used by local users as a
SOCKS5 proxy in their browsers.
- This server then sends all proxy requests to a gateway server outside
Our configuration is as highlighted in the docs above:
The local proxy configuration file, in OppressiveCountry:
The remote gateway proxy, outside of OppressiveCountry (IP:126.96.36.199):
It works fine when in debug mode, using -v on both servers:
delegated -v +=/etc/delegated.conf
But the servers are throwing errors and refuse connection when running
going to the background.
In particular, we get this line:
(UNIX) 10:29:53.270  #### PrivateSox Failure ####
The only difference is the fact that we run in debug mode.
I can't seem to find out why delegate would behave differently in
There doesn't look to be any other errors reported in the log file.
Thank you for any help on this.
