Transparently route UDP traffic under Linux across SOCKS (or alternative solutions)

I've got a cheap VPS running Linux under OpenVZ. It won't let me create TUN or TAP devices so the only other solution I could think of was to NAT it via a SOCKS server such as this one:

http://transocks.sourceforge.net/

Which only supports SOCKS4 so isn't of any use.

I only intend to route certain address blocks through the tunnel.

Is there any solution to this problem or am I going to have to get a better VPS or patch transocks to support UDP?

Considering how much time that would take, I think I would just get a VPS with more "root".

You could try a tcp udp tunnel.

Yes I could roll my own tunnel like that since I can't find any. Anyhow, the VPS sucks I'll get a real one.

Can't be bothered with the hassle and will just get a decent host so I can open tun devices, wasted too much time already just so I could access certain ranges that by block can't.

I'll give you the points rather than delete the Q.
