SS5 is a socks server that implements the SOCKS v4 and v5 protocol. As a proxy server, SS5 authenticates, profiles and processes network requests for clients.

Socks Server 5 establishes connections to application hosts for client applications. When the client attempts to access the network, the client connects to the SS5 daemon instead of the application host.

Following authentication, clients request that SS5 perform network activities for the client.

The activities might include:


The SS5 protocol is independent of application protocols, and can assist with different networking services, including telnet, ftp, finger, whois, gopher, and WWW access.
