Proxychains is a UNIX program, that hooks network-related libc functions
in dynamically linked programs via a preloaded DLL (dlsym(), LD_PRELOAD)
and redirects the connections through SOCKS4a/5 or HTTP proxies.
It supports TCP only (no UDP/ICMP etc).
This project, proxychains-ng, is the continuation of the unmaintained
proxychains project (known as proxychains package in Debian).
