Subject: New Feature Request: SOCKS Proxy-ing
I have the need to use Net::SSH::Perl to setup an SSH connection to a far-end target, via another machine running SOCKS. Here is a description of how I solved the problem: I would like to see this functionality incorporated into a new release of Net::SSH::Perl, but I'm not convinced that my solution is the best. One alternative method that occurs to me is to simply allow the user to pass in an already opened socket. This way I could setup the SOCKS socket (or any other type of socket I might need to use) outside of Net::SSH::Perl and simply pass it in. This may be a more generic solution, but it also has it's problems. I suspect that some design discussion needs to take place here. On a side note, while I was messing with this solution, I was trying to implement things so that the Net::SSH::W32Perl module functionality could also be integrated into Net::SSH::Perl, as this makes sense to me. However, I didn't have time to follow through on this. It would be nice for this to happen as well. -Craig
