Probably not. It depends on the client software however.

It makes chances higher more things will work.

MS Proxy is basically a combination of a HTTP proxy and a SOCKS proxy,
plus a SOCKS client for Windows. It is not actually using SOCKS but a MS
protocol which goes slightly beyond what SOCKSv5 can do but not far
(SOCKSv5 has some issues with incoming sessions and UDP).

Dante is a reasonable one, but not alone. Here is a list of free open
source Socks servers in no particular order:


Simple Socks Server: (also
has free Windows client)

Socks Server 5:



there may be more.
