Hi Guys

I have one question regarding network tunneling:
General structure the next:
1) my application (.net) which connect to
2) http(or socks 4/5) proxy server which connect to
3) External socks 5 proxy server (which requires authentication)

Can this be done using SecureBlackbox[SSHBlackbox/HTTPBlackbox]
(regarding step 2)?
If so, please provide some more information or maybe some sample of code.

SecureBlackbox' built-in socket supports SOCKS, HTTP and HTTPS CONNECT proxies (for SOCKS and HTTPS CONNECT see UseSocks and UseWebTunneling properties, for HTTP proxy use TElHTTPSClient component).

However that socket doesn't support cascading proxies and there are no plans for such support at the moment, though you can add such idea to the wishlist.

Sincerely yours

Thanks for answer but I want to clarify the task:
I need to create a proxy server which listen incoming connections (like http or socks proxy) and forwards them to another proxy (http or socks).
This is the case that you have answered?

Nope, I thought you need to make a client which would connect through 2 proxies.

With our components you can create HTTP or HTTPS CONNECT proxy server (and connect to remote SOCKS or Proxy server as well).

We don't have publicly usable code for SOCKS server (we do have it internally for SSH server, but it's internal and can't be exposed).

Sincerely yours
