Latest commit 2305532 Apr 6, 2019


This library allows you to connect over Socks5 proxies when using the .NET HttpClient.

It implements the IWebProxy interface and can therefore be used with all libraries that support HTTP/HTTPS proxies.

Usage with an HttpClient

using MihaZupan;

var proxy = new HttpToSocks5Proxy("", 1080);
var handler = new HttpClientHandler { Proxy = proxy };
HttpClient httpClient = new HttpClient(handler, true);

var result = await httpClient.SendAsync(
    new HttpRequestMessage(HttpMethod.Get, ""));

Console.WriteLine("HTTPS GET: " + await result.Content.ReadAsStringAsync());

Usage with Telegram.Bot library

The library was originally designed to fight censorship attempts against Telegram.

Using it with the Telegram Bot Library is therefore a breeze.

using MihaZupan;

var proxy = new HttpToSocks5Proxy("", 1080);

// Or if the proxy server requires credentials (gssapi is not supported):
new HttpToSocks5Proxy("", 1080, "username", "password");

// Some proxies limit target connections to a single IP address
// If that is the case you have to resolve hostnames locally
proxy.ResolveHostnamesLocally = true;

TelegramBotClient Bot = new TelegramBotClient("API Token", proxy);

I need more latency

Worry not, you can now chain SOCKS proxies with this library

var proxy = new HttpToSocks5Proxy(new[] {
    new ProxyInfo("", 1080),
    new ProxyInfo("", 1090),
    new ProxyInfo("", 1080)


Install as a NuGet package:

Package manager:

Install-Package HttpToSocks5Proxy
