Simple Socks Server for Perl
Originally I was looking for a simple SOCKS5 Server (with user/pass auth) that
would run as a non-root user on FreeBSD.
I checked the FreeBSD ports for various SOCKS5 solutions and tried them all,
only to discover that each one had a reason why it would not work, or why I
could not use it.
I figured this could be done in perl, but found that there was no well
maintained perl based solutions.
I hacked together this solution (with help from public domain scripts) and
cleaned it up, ready for release.
Its simple, a feature I intend to maintain, however there is scope for much more
potential, especially with user feedback.
