Hi there!

Just thinking aloud... I wonder if any of you knows how much memory
does a SOCKS5 server need, and if it´d be possible to make one fit
inside the OSD.

Suppose I have an OSD in a different subnet, and I want to use it as a
low-power proxy (actualy socks) tunnel server...

Of course, the process would be killed when using the OSD for its
original purpose (recording video), but it could be used as socks
gateway when not in use for video.

Right now my only concern is not what kind of performance one might
get, but more like if a basic socks5 server would fit in the OSD´s
limited RAM...

Thoughts? comments? expletives? ;)

So is this a "because it's there" type project? With the advent of
cheap NAT devices and iptables on Linux, I'm not sure what the
residential use of SOCKS is in this day and age...
