I have 10 socks5 proxys and I want to make a Linux server to connect to (use as a proxy) and connect me to one of the socks. The connection should be random. Any ideas how to do this? Squid isn't a solution because it doesn't work with socks.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You could use something like balance on your "server in the middle" so you'll have a socks listening port which balances on the 10 destination socks server you have, it should work as soon as you ask balance to keep source host X always on the same socks until he fails.
