No link here, but there is a HOWTO on the Proxychains site on Sourceforge....did you read it?

http://proxychains.sourceforge.net/howto.html

Examples are in the default config file, sent with the code, did you look in there? There is also a user forum on Sourceforge....

Well, not to sound harsh, but if you don't understand THEIR explanation, why would you understand OURS?

If you're having problems understanding something SPECIFIC, post it, and post what you THINK it does, and maybe we can help. Asking us to reiterate all the proxychains docs, so you might understand them (when we don't know WHAT you don't understand), is pointless.

Configuration:
proxychains looks for config file in following order:
1) ./proxychains.conf
2) $(HOME)/.proxychains/proxychains.conf
3) /etc/proxychains.conf **


that part i don't understand.Do i have to edite this file?

It depends on if you want to change how it's operating right now. There's a default set of options in the file...if you don't change them, that's how it'll operate.

The order is just as it says.
  • It checks the current directory (./) for a proxychains.conf file,
  • Then it checks your own home directory, (the $HOME is a Linux environment variable, which points to your home dir, like /home/bob) in the .proxychains sub-directory for a config.
  • Then it checks the default, system-wide config file in the /etc directory.

So let's say you're a developer. You are installing a bit of software, and want to test things. So you put a config file in /usr/local/mysoftware directory, and run things from there, to test out the config, and check for bugs. If you copy the changes to the config files of the people who need your software (their $HOME/.proxychains directories), then those users will have those settings by default. If you copy those changes into the /etc file, then EVERYONE will have them. It checks in that order, so your PERSONAL config can be different than the SYSTEM config. If the files above are missing, it rolls down to the next one, and so on.
