Has anyone gotten the socks5 daemon to work?  I keep getting stumped by this
Jun 29 20:26:39 cartman Socks5[57106]: Auth Failed: (

My socks5.conf looks like this..
auth - - -
permit - - 10.0.0. - - -

I've tried w/o the auth line, same results.

Ok, i've cranked up the debugging..  now I get this..

1253 <= 65535)?

Jun 29 20:29:19 cartman Socks5[57128]: Auth Failed: (

ok.. now.. i did exactly what the man page told me not to do...  I changed
the permit line to..
auth - - -
permit - - - - - -

and NOW it works!!! what did I do wrong?  anyone? I don't think that my
permit line is exactly secure...

I case anyone wants to know, my setup is is the server, clients are  Internet connection is via tun0, lan connection is via fxp0
