SocksVersion enumeration

Versions of the SOCKS protocol

public enum SocksVersion : byte


Name Value Description
SocksV4 4 SOCKS4 and SOCKS4a version SOCKS4a extends the SOCKS4 protocol to allow a client to specify a destination domain name rather than an IPv4 address; this is useful when the client itself cannot resolve the destination host’s domain name to an IP address.
SocksV5 5 SOCKS5 version The SOCKS5 protocol is defined in RFC 1928. It is an extension of the SOCKS4 protocol; it offers more choices for authentication, and adds support for IPv6 and UDP, the latter of which can be used for DNS lookups.
