I have list of SOCKS5 proxy servers, which is frequently updated. I want my traffic to go randomly or in order go through this list.

The server itself has to be SOCKS5 server. For example:

Data => => Proxy1
                        => Proxy2
                        => Proxy3

How can i do that ? I'm using redsocks but it only supports one proxy.

Use a setup similar to the redsocks README and the iptables RANDOM module to load balance/redirect each connection startup to each real proxy.
