A protocol for handling TCP traffic through a proxy server. It can be used with virtually any TCP application, including Web browsers and FTP clients. It provides a simple firewall because it checks incoming and outgoing packets and hides the IP addresses of client applications.

There are two main versions of SOCKS -- V4 and V5. V5 adds an authentication mechanism for additional security. There are many freeware implementations of both versions. One of the most common V5 implementations is SOCKS5, developed by NEC.
Before I attempted to hack that server, I connected through multipe SOCKS proxies.

Central Processing Unit.

A CPU is basically the brains of your computer. Without a CPU, your computer would be an expensive paperweight.
I'm still running an Intel Celeron 500MHz CPU.

A type of modem that relies on a computer's CPU, software, and the Windows operating system to work. Winmodems are known to be system resource hogs, and usually come with buggy drivers causing system instability.

Though Winmodems are intended to be used with the Windows operating system, there are Linux drivers available. Regardless of what you may read or hear, Winmodems are not real modems.
Controller-based modems are superior to Winmodems because they don't rely on your computer's CPU or operating system to work.

One of Tom Petty's best album to date. "Wildflowers" was released in late 1994, and became an instant hit album. The album contained the songs "You Don't Know How It Feels", "Honey Bee", "You Wreck Me", "It's Good to be King", "Wildflowers", "House in the Woods", and many other great songs.
Some Tom Petty fans feel "Wildflowers" was Tom Pety's last great album.
