As far as I know dante can only be made "transparent" with the use of client
side software (such as the libsocks.so libraries under *nix) and not from the
server side (i.e. tunneling the traffic through a SOCKS proxy).  The
way I think of
it is similar to NAT (in the capturing of traffic)?

Or am I missing something?
