SOCKS proxy client recomendation for Linux

I need some recomendations for a good proxy client to run on
a linux box (2.0.35) on a private lan with a NT firewall running
MS Proxy. The MS Proxy has the needed services enabled,
all I need to do is get a proxy client running on my Linux machine.
I am messing with the socks5 client and runsocks from the NEC
site but thing's are not working out.
Are there any other clients out there that would be of use?
If not I would settle for a goot ftp and telnet client that have their own
proxy setting like Netscape does.

Thanks

Nec proxy clients work like a charm for me, authentication included. I'm using:

s5 --file=uc telnet somewhere.edu

where uc is a file in the .sock5 dir in my homedir:

SOCKS5_SERVER=sockserver.edu
SOCKS5_USER=some_user_name
SOCKS5_PASSWD=some_very_long_pass
SOCKS5_FAKEALLHOSTS=1

My Socks server (running Linux... ;-) has a /etc/socks5.conf:

permit u - -
auth - - u
auth 127. - n

and a /etc/socks5.passwd:

some_user_name some_very_long_pass

Try it again!!!

I'll look for the "s5" client...
the one I got was with the socks5 server, the socks5 libraries
and a script to "sockify" network commands.

Is s5 a script or a binary?
I can't find it anywhere... I downloaded the
socks5-v1.0r6 source, compiled it, and there's
nothing like that in there... there is a runsocks script,
a wack of server stuff that I don't need also...
Do you know of and client-specific packages?

s5 is just a wrapper to set the right environment... I don't remember where I got it but I can send it to you... Any way the idea is to "LD_PRELOAD" the library and in this case ANY ELF binary will use socksified versions of connect(), socket(), etc... And the library uses the environment set by the script.

thanks man, I'll hack at it :>
btw I am running Slackware 3.4,
I run debian on some other boxes too.

Soon I may be running a Linux gateway/proxy
and I won't have to worry about this NT crap
*cackle*
