Socks5 Applications

Before creating the application, you should add a port of type socks5_proxy to the partition where the Socks5 application is needed in the global configuration/configure partition port page.

Socks5 User Management

If the Socks5 application enabled user authentication, you need to add users and user groups within the application. The user authentication methods are common password authentication and LDAP authentication.

LDAP Authentication Configuration.

  • Auto Sync: When enabled, users will be synced every 10 minutes. Users synced over have no user group by default, or you can click the sync button to sync manually.
  • LDAP server: the domain name or IP of the LDAP service.
  • Search DN: e.g. dc=example,dc=org
  • Search method: field for login username, such as uid
  • Manage DN: e.g. cn=admin,dc=example,dc=org

Socks5 Authentication Rules

After the Socks5 application is created, you need to configure authorization rules to allow its use. The rules that follow are not checked after matching one deny or permit rule.

  • Source type: cidr / user group / user name

  • Objectives: Depend on objective type, multiple objectives are supported.
  • Target Port: Supports multiple ports
  • Bandwidth: the bandwidth limit to access the target
  • Start time: when the rule takes effect
  • End time: Rule expiration time
