I use to run Kingate (kingate.sourceforge.net) as a SOCKS server for a friend so he could use IRC (his campus firewall/latency causes huge lag and connection drops on IRC - when he uses the proxy I provide there is no noticeable lag/connection problems). After moving to FC5, it produced one too many headaches for me on this, and decided it best to move on to another SOCKS server solution (hopefully still maintained?). I hit up freshmeat and sourceforge, but nothing really looked that promising. SS5 looks a bit over-kill and lots of configuring (oh joy :sarcasm: ).

Open to suggestions on Proxy/SOCKS Servers I can run so he can get back on IRC again. Would prefer it to have IP-lock on it (I only want him using it).
