Dante Socks (danted) is probably your best bet.  The default configuration has a lot of comments that you can follow.

here is part of my Dante Configuration (/etc/danted.conf).  My Socks server only allows my local network to connect (10.110.179.0/24), and does not require a username and password.

internal: eth0 port = 1080
internal: 127.0.0.1 port = 1080

external: eth0

method: username none
#the above puts no username or password. Access will instead be controlled via client ip address/range.
#if there is no username or password - then danted socks server needs to run as nobody, i.e.

#method: pam
# if you choose to use pam instead - a valid username&password as required for sshing to the socks server is required.
#Note: not sure if proxy login details are sent in clear text.

#user.privileged: proxy
user.notprivileged: nobody

client pass {
        from: 10.110.179.0/24 port 1-65535 to: 0.0.0.0/0
        # 136.201.251.21/0 = specific ip address.
} 

client pass {
        from: 127.0.0.0/8 port 1-65535 to: 0.0.0.0/0
}

client block {
        from: 0.0.0.0/0 to: 0.0.0.0/0
        log: connect error
}

#Finally block other traffic
block {
  from: 0.0.0.0/0 to: 127.0.0.0/8
  log: connect error
}

pass {
  from: 10.110.179.0/24 to: 0.0.0.0/0
  protocol: tcp udp
}

pass {
  from: 127.0.0.0/8 to: 0.0.0.0/0
  protocol: tcp udp
}

block {
  from: 0.0.0.0/0 to: 0.0.0.0/0
  log: connect error
}
