What is a Socks proxy?

A SOCKS server is a general purpose proxy server that establishes a TCP connection to another server on behalf of a client, then routes all the traffic back and forth between the client and the server. SOCKS Version 5 adds additional support for security and UDP.

Why use SOCKS5 with Limeproxies?

With our Socks proxies, we provide a unique port number that is dedicated to you which makes it more secure. 

You can enable socks from the Dashboard on any of the Premium proxy packages.
NOTE: SOCKS5 only works with IP authentication.
