socks-proxy-agent

A SOCKS proxy http.Agent implementation for HTTP and HTTPS

Build Status

This module provides an http.Agent implementation that connects to a specified SOCKS proxy server, and can be used with the built-in http and https modules.

It can also be used in conjunction with the ws module to establish a WebSocket connection over a SOCKS proxy. See the "Examples" section below.

Installation

Install with npm:

npm install socks-proxy-agent

Examples

TypeScript example
import https from 'https'; import { SocksProxyAgent } from 'socks-proxy-agent'; const info = { hostname: 'br41.nordvpn.com', userId: '[email protected]', password: 'abcdef12345124' }; const agent = new SocksProxyAgent(info); https.get('https://ipinfo.io', { agent }, (res) => { console.log(res.headers); res.pipe(process.stdout); });
http module example
var url = require('url'); var http = require('http'); var { SocksProxyAgent } = require('socks-proxy-agent'); // SOCKS proxy to connect to var proxy = process.env.socks_proxy || 'socks://127.0.0.1:1080'; console.log('using proxy server %j', proxy); // HTTP endpoint for the proxy to connect to var endpoint = process.argv[2] || 'http://nodejs.org/api/'; console.log('attempting to GET %j', endpoint); var opts = url.parse(endpoint); // create an instance of the `SocksProxyAgent` class with the proxy server information var agent = new SocksProxyAgent(proxy); opts.agent = agent; http.get(opts, function (res) { console.log('"response" event!', res.headers); res.pipe(process.stdout); });
https module example
var url = require('url'); var https = require('https'); var { SocksProxyAgent } = require('socks-proxy-agent'); // SOCKS proxy to connect to var proxy = process.env.socks_proxy || 'socks://127.0.0.1:1080'; console.log('using proxy server %j', proxy); // HTTP endpoint for the proxy to connect to var endpoint = process.argv[2] || 'https://encrypted.google.com/'; console.log('attempting to GET %j', endpoint); var opts = url.parse(endpoint); // create an instance of the `SocksProxyAgent` class with the proxy server information var agent = new SocksProxyAgent(proxy); opts.agent = agent; https.get(opts, function (res) { console.log('"response" event!', res.headers); res.pipe(process.stdout); });
ws WebSocket connection example
var WebSocket = require('ws'); var { SocksProxyAgent } = require('socks-proxy-agent'); // SOCKS proxy to connect to var proxy = process.env.socks_proxy || 'socks://127.0.0.1:1080'; console.log('using proxy server %j', proxy); // WebSocket endpoint for the proxy to connect to var endpoint = process.argv[2] || 'ws://echo.websocket.org'; console.log('attempting to connect to WebSocket %j', endpoint); // create an instance of the `SocksProxyAgent` class with the proxy server information var agent = new SocksProxyAgent(proxy); // initiate the WebSocket connection var socket = new WebSocket(endpoint, { agent: agent }); socket.on('open', function () { console.log('"open" event!'); socket.send('hello world'); }); socket.on('message', function (data, flags) { console.log('"message" event! %j %j', data, flags); socket.close(); });
