This version can be pinned in stack with:socks-0.6.0@sha256:a058ee6b66da40a2365efcf44b4c06c96e58a23b150bd3f3d0f9f5cadc33f728,1318


Haskell library implementation of the SOCKS 5 protocol.


  • more socks authentification methods: only no authentification is supported for now.
  • support of socks’ bind for server to client connection (like FTP).
  • add socks4a and socks4 support.


See Example.hs for really simple and straighforward example. The main api is only 2 calls:

  • socksConnectAddr which connect to a SockAddr (SockAddrInet or SockAddrInet6). The name resolution is left on client side.
  • socksConnectName which connect to a fully qualified domain name “”. The proxy server will do the name resolution.
