Remote Desktop to SOCKS5
RDtoS5 by Thegrideon Software is a lightweight and easy to use proxifier for Remote Desktop connections. It allows you to redirect RDP traffic through a SOCKS5 proxy. It works differently from common proxifiers and can be used under limited user accounts.
RDtoS5 proxifier features:
- Easy to use GUI tool.
- Works under limited user accounts.
- IPv4, IPv6 and Domain Names are supported.
- .onion addresses can be used with a Tor SOCKS5 proxy.
- Extremely lightweight and low resource consumption.
- Native WinAPI design - NO external libraries or frameworks to install.
- Detailed Log console can be started to troubleshot connection issues.
- Windows XP - Windows 10, x86 and x64 editions.
Native Windows Remote Desktop client is designed to establish a direct connection to a remote server and this can be an issue for systems accessible trough proxy servers only. The common solution is to use universal "proxifiers" to intercept RD connection and route it trough a proxy, but such tools are just way too powerful and complicated for a simple client-server TCP connection used in Remote Desktop Protocol. This way of interception requires techniques like system hooks, DLL injections, network filters, etc., thus Administrative privileges are usually required and some other compatibility issues may exist. Our Remote Desktop to SOCKS5 tool serves a single purpose of redirecting RDP traffic trough a SOCKS5 proxy. It acts as a server, listens for a connection to a local port (e.g. "localhost:757") and redirects data to a selected remote server trough a chosen proxy. Remote server and proxy parameters are known, thus there is no need to intercept normal system behavior. The only thing required is to set Windows Remote Desktop client to connect to the RDtoS5's local address like "localhost:757" and RDP traffic can be redirected trough a SOCKS5 proxy. No evaluated privileges or system hooks are required, x86 and x64 systems and clients are supported, other connections or programs are not affected.
