SOCKS is a networking protocol that enables hosts on one side of a Socks server to gain full access to hosts on the other side of the SOCKS server without requiring direct IP-reachability.

SOCKS is often used as a network firewall,redirecting connection requests from hosts on opposite sides of a SOCKS server

The Socks server authenicates and authorizes requests,establishes a proxy connection and relays data between hosts
