Socks4 vs Socks5 in cURL
« on: May 30, 2007, 09:51:46 AM »
Hello to all.

I have a question about the socks protocol. I'm using curl to simulate a browser and I was thinking to use its proxying features. Is it possible to use Sock5 and Sock4 proxies setting CURLOPT_PROXYTYPE to CURLPROXY_SOCKS4?

In other words is it possible to communicate with a Sock5 server using the Sock4 protocol?
