tsocks software in Slackware
Which package should I install to use tsocks?
in other distros we just install "tsocks", But what package in Slackware?
I have installed tsocks from but it seems that this is only a library.

There is a slackbuild for tsocks, I believe.

Both you are right. I have installed the package from . the stable version. But the package which is prepared by slackbuid works properly.

Where is it's config file?

I found that I have to make /etc/tsocks.conf and configure tsocks using it.
I have configured it as:
server =
server_port = 9050
server_type = 5

But still have problem by tsocks:
When I start a program via tsocks, it doesn't affect connection.
The program has its default connection and the IPs are default.
Is there anything more to do?
