SOCKS tunnel

Post by bilalm » Wed Dec 20, 2017 1:24 pm

SE client doesn't connect to SE server via direction connection due to some corporate restriction. SOCKS tunnel gets established e.g. Psiphon and clients i.e. Web browsers can exchange traffic through the SOCKS tunnel. Can SE client get through to the SE server if configure the same SOCKS proxy in VPN properties that Psiphon automatically inserts into the IE / Windows settings? I tried, didn't work, I thought to ask if anyone experimented.

SoftEther doesn't support automatic configuration.
IP address and port number of SOCKS server are necessary for VPN client Connection Setting.
