Dante socks5 server (v1.3.2/v1.4.2) auto-install and management script


To build a socks5 server, we have lots of open-source programs to reach that, Dante is one of them. I have been using Dante for years and starting to write this auto-install and management script two years ago. This is the second update to match the systemd and new OS release like Debian 8 , CentOS 7.

Comparing with the apt-get or building from source manually, this script will benefit you bellow

  • Auto-recognize, detect the machine's system automatically and compile from source code.
  • Auto-config, check the system's network or read from argument to auto-generate config file.
  • Same-rotation, in multi-ipaddr system. It works like when using different ip address to connect socks5, your external ip address will be different. That's the main reason why I using Dante for years.
  • Multi-authorization, you can configure authorization by pam, system or using whitelist.
  • Docker support [New]
  • Support Dante Latest version 1.4.2 [New]

Install by Docker

Docker Run

# sockd.passwd is a `htpasswd` file contains socks5 auth user/password. 
docker run -d \
    --name sockd \
    --publish 2020:2020 \
    --volume sockd.passwd:/home/danted/conf/sockd.passwd \

Docker Compose

Generate compose

# wget
version: '3'


    image: lozyme/sockd
    restart: always
      - 2020:2020
      - sockd.passwd:/home/danted/conf/sockd.passwd
      # - sockd.conf:/home/danted/conf/sockd.conf


docker-compose up -d


ss -lnp | grep 2020

User Show/Add/Modify/Delete

[Show]          $docker exec docker_sockd_1 script/pam show
[Add/Modify]    $docker exec docker_sockd_1 script/pam add USER PASSWORD
[Delete]        $docker exec docker_sockd_1 script/pam del USER

You should run bellow to change default password

docker exec docker_sockd_1 script/pam add sockd sockd


curl --socks5 --proxy-user sockd:sockd
