Re: Tsocks and DNS

Thanks for the response. It sounds like torify and tsocks may not be the best solution. Are there any other good *nix applications/workarounds that people have been using?

I spoke too soon.  tsocks is under GPLv2, and they distribute a
patched tsocks with the license in place.

Honestly, I don't want to make it sound like there's anything wrong
with this code; DNS APIs a royal pain in the neck to implement, and
DNS logic is a pit of nasty exception cases and things you were
assumed to know.
