How can I pragmatically tell the difference between SOCKS 4, SOCKS 5, and HTTP Proxies?

    making a proxy program... that is more effective than any other one on the market :)

    but i honestly don't know how to pragmatically discern between the three different types.

    I'll give a free exclusive copy to whoever answers my question. That is when im done programming it.

    Still have a bit of work to do on the dangerous ip filtering, its a bitch lol

    Thanks,

    To be honest, I strongly doubt you'll be able to create a good tool if you need to ask this question.

    The answer is clear and easy. Read the RFC's for the proxy types and learn how they work. That's it.

    dude, you need to learn about socket programming AFAIK, read the server manuals. They all have different ports etc.
