Android Socks5 proxy

As an update to my last post I was able to get a socks5 proxy going on android(with no root) with ipv6 also working via the proxy

Some reason the screenshot program screws up the colors


That IP is one of my VPS’s and as you can see, ipv6 is working  (i don’t have ipv6 at home either)

How I did it:

Start with irssi connect-bot And save a server, on the main menu area, press and hold the server, and select “Edit Port fowards” and add a new one with info like:

You don’t need the same port, but it does need to be a dynamic socks proxy


Then on firefox go to about:config

Search for “proxy” and make the following changes:

network.proxy.socks = localhost
network.proxy.socks_port = 50505  (or what ever port you used)
network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = true
network.proxy.type = 1

and boom, it should work :D to revert to no proxy make network.proxy.type = 5
