Summary0000219: Support for "Remote" SOCKS Proxies
DescriptionI found under advanced settings that we can enable Remote Proxy which is useful in some circumstances for crawling, via /Settings_p.html?page=proxy

The problem is this screen only accepts "HTTP" proxies. It would be useful if it supported pure SOCKS5 proxies as well.

YaCy cannot (not directly) make use of SOCKS proxies for crawling and/or peer-to-peer communication as this is HTTP again (e.g. POST /yacy/hello.html). One idea would be allow (what you maybe want) is to allow DNS requests send over SOCKS.

I think he wants native support for SOCKS4/5 implementation to tunnel the HTTP Requests through it.

there will be NO chance that anybody of the current developers will do that until YOU try to implement this yourself. Please clone YaCy and insert the feature.
