NAME ^

POE::Component::Proxy::SOCKS - A POE based SOCKS 4 proxy server.

SYNOPSIS ^

   use strict;
   use Net::Netmask;
   use POE qw(Component::Proxy::SOCKS);
   
   $|=1;
   
   POE::Session->create(
      package_states => [ 
        'main' => [ qw(_start _default socksd_registered) ],
      ],

   $poe_kernel->run();
   exit 0;
   
   sub _start {
     my ($kernel,$heap) = @_[KERNEL,HEAP];
     $heap->{socksd} = POE::Component::Proxy::SOCKS->spawn( alias => 'socksd', ident => 0 );
     return;
   }

DESCRIPTION ^

POE::Component::Proxy::SOCKS is a POE component that implements a SOCKS version 4/4a proxy server. It has IP address based access controls, provided by Net::Netmask, and can use IDENT to further confirm user identity.

POE sessions may register with the SOCKS component to receive events relating to connections etc.

The poco supports both SOCKS CONNECT and SOCKS BIND commands.

CONSTRUCTOR ^

spawn

Starts a new SOCKS proxy session and returns an object. If spawned from within another POE session, the parent session will be automagically registered and receive a socksd_registered event. See below for details.

Takes several optional parameters:

  'alias', a kernel alias to address the poco by;
  'address', set a particular IP address on a multi-homed box to bind to;
  'port', set a particular TCP port to listen on, default 1080;
  'ident', indicate whether ident lookups should be performed, default 0;
  'options', pass a hashref of POE session options;
  'time_out', adjust the time out period in seconds, default is 120 seconds;

METHODS ^

These methods are available on the returned POE::Component::Proxy::SOCKS object:

session_id

Returns the POE session ID of the poco's session.

shutdown

Terminates the poco, dropping all connections and pending connections.

send_event

Sends an event through the poco's event handling system.

add_denial

Takes one mandatory argument. The mandatory argument is a Net::Netmask object that will be used to check connecting IP addresses against.

del_denial

Takes one mandatory argument, a Net::Netmask object to remove from the current denial list.

denied

Takes one argument, an IP address. Returns true or false depending on whether that IP is denied or not.

add_exemption

Takes one mandatory argument, a Net::Netmask object that will be checked against connecting IP addresses for exemption from denials.

del_exemption

Takes one mandatory argument, a Net::Netmask object to remove from the current exemption list.

exempted

Takes one argument, an IP address. Returns true or false depending on whether that IP is exempt from denial or not.

INPUT EVENTS ^

register

Takes N arguments: a list of event names that your session wants to listen for, minus the 'socksd_' prefix, ( this is similar to POE::Component::IRC ).

Registering for 'all' will cause it to send all SOCKSD-related events to you; this is the easiest way to handle it.

unregister

Takes N arguments: a list of event names which you don't want to receive. If you've previously done a 'register' for a particular event which you no longer care about, this event will tell the SOCKSD to stop sending them to you. (If you haven't, it just ignores you. No big deal).

shutdown

Terminates the poco, dropping all connections and pending connections.

OUTPUT EVENTS ^

The component generates a number of socksd_ prefixed events that are dispatched to registered sessions.

socksd_registered

This event is sent to a registering session. ARG0 is POE::Component::Proxy::SOCKS object.

socksd_denied

Generated whenever a client is denied access. ARG0 is the client IP and ARG1 the client port.

socksd_connection

Generated when client successfully connects. ARG0 is a unique client ID, ARG1 is the peer address, ARG2 is the peer port, ARG3 is our socket address and ARG4 is our socket port.

socksd_rejected

Generated when a SOCKS transaction is rejected. ARG0 is the unique client ID, ARG1 is the SOCKS result code and ARG2 is a reason for the rejection.

socksd_listener_failed

Generated if the poco fails to get a listener. ARG0 is the operation, ARG1 is the errnum and ARG2 is the errstr.

socksd_disconnected

Generated whenever a client disconnects. ARG0 is the unique client ID.

socksd_dns_lookup

Generated whenever the poco services a successful SOCKS 4a DNS lookup. ARG0 is the unique client ID. ARG1 is the hostname resolved and ARG2 is the IP address of that host.

socksd_sock_up

Generated when a CONNECT is successful. ARG0 is the unique client ID, ARG1 is the unqiue link ID, ARG2 is the destination IP and ARG3 the destination port.

socksd_bind_up

Generated whenever a BIND is succesful. ARG0 is the unique client ID, ARG1 is the unique ID for the listener, ARG2 is our socket IP and ARG3 is our port.

socksd_sock_down

Generated whenever a socket to an application server is terminated. ARG0 is the unique client ID, ARG1 is the unqiue link ID, ARG2 is the error string.
