A proxy is really something that someone uses on their behalf. Typically, a proxy is a computer or a server connected to another computer whose instructions you are requesting. An HTTP proxy is the protocol equivalent to a socks proxy. Thus, it has the advantage of being able to pass information among two machines unable to communicate using the same firewall or other network policy because it can make use of open ports that allow it to search and open data ports via TDP or UDP. The proxies in question are nearly all common since they're hidden beneath almost every protocols that today's proxies must run under. Many feel that they're outdated.
Whether it just be to bypass a senseless protocol on your home network or for something more serious like hiding your IP address from prying eyes socks is still an extremely useful tool. There is normally a threshold before anything other than a question on a device that addresses IPv4 or IPv6. Unlike other types of proxies which could be less of an issue for privacy violations, socks traffic tends to slip past people and is significantly easier to control and maintain. If you expect privacy on the internet and areguising your identity, it is not a crime that has been codified. This is also true in the United States, Canada, and other European countries. By choosing to engage in an activity for which you have newfound anonymity, it is crucial that you become aware of the repercussions.
