Projects / proxy


Proxy is a C application that when run on a multi-homed host will forward all packets from source, to destination. Where source might be a system on the internet, and destination might be a box on a private network behind a multi-homed linux machine. It's also good for setting up sort of a 'bounce back' connection for poeple trying to attack you. Just run the proxy and point the outgoing connection to your attackers system, and they will end up attacking their own machine.

        So Simple
        This project is so simple! It has so many potential uses:

        -It can remap a port number (eg ssh on port 80)

        -It can allow services bound to localhost to be accessed by eth0.

        This is what OpenSource is all about. Good job!

        Did you do 1.1 or 2.0?
        I just submitted an announcement for 2.0. Check it out, since the author claims that it's a complete rewrite.

        Some problems with proxy
        For some reason, proxy can't be compiled under mkLinux unless you hack the code a bit. You have to add the line typedef long socklen_t; to np.h before it will work.

        Also, for some reason, under mk, proxy will not successfully clone itself after it finishes a connection, resulting in a zombie copy as well as a non functioning original.
