NmcSocks: A NameCoin socks proxy.
Because you can never have too many namecoin socks proxies.
This one is written for node.js.
It implements some of the new namecoin spec ( http://dot-bit.org/Domain_names )
It gets namecoin records from namecoind on demand, rather than doing bulk grabs and caching.
It tries pretty hard to "just work", although it has command line switches to fine tune its behavior.
- node ( http://nodejs.org/ )
- optimist and binary (
npm install optimist binary)
- namecoin ( https://github.com/vinced/namecoin )
namecoind will need to be running for this proxy to be useful.
- ipv6 support
- support for the whole spec
- see what it takes to build standalone binaries
- test on windows.
From the parent directory,
By default, nmcsocks will attempt to chain connections into another local socks proxy on port 9050. If such a proxy doesn't exist, connections are made directly.
To run in strict "Tor" mode, where DNS leaks are prevented and "tor" fields in Namecoin records are given priority, use
node nmcsocks --tor
To see all the settings, try
node nmcsocks -h
