SOCKS5 proxies

To use the SOCKS5 protocol you simply need to specify that in the tool or language you are using it on, for example this is a curl using SOCKS5:

curl -U user:pass -x socks5h://

The only difference between an HTTP curl is the socks5h:// (mind the letter h, as it specifies that hostnames are not resolved locally) added before the endpoint.

Note that you have to use endpoint in order to use SOCKS5, country endpoints like will not work. You can instead target specific locations by specifying the location in your username using Single backconnect entry node, for example, this curl targets US location:

curl -U user-username-country-us:pass -x socks5h://
