Npam how to find wich type of socks is this?
i use this syntax

nmap -sS -n -Pn --max-retries 1 -T 4 --script socks-open=proxy xxxxxx/xx 

Open in new window


Result:
Can't see if is socks 4 or 5
Nmap scan report for xxxxxxxx
Host is up (0.016s latency).
PORT     STATE    SERVICE
1080/tcp open socks

nmap does not know and does not perform such detections.

the standard protocol for 1080 is socks proxy
the port being 1080 ca, also be a web server but you can't be sure.

first try and declare the host and port as a socks server and see if it works. if yes, you have your answer.

try and connect with telnet. if you get a banner, you probably have the protocol written in the banner.

nc smtp.gmail.com 25
220 smtp.gmail.com ESMTP f17sm15860558wmf.10 - gsmtp

for banner-less protocols, you'd have to fish and expect to be lucky. often, sending a dummy or empty query will produce a reasonably significant error string that will help you guess.

sending "DUMMY" as a request to a web server produces an error that is obviously HTTP

$ nc -v localhost 80
Connection to localhost 80 port [tcp/http] succeeded!
DUMMY
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<html><head>
<title>501 Not Implemented</title>
</head><body>
<h1>Not Implemented</h1>
<p>DUMMY to / not supported.<br />
</p>
<hr>
<address>Apache Server at 127.0.1.1 Port 80</address>
</body></html>

in some cases you'd be less lucky. i do not know of a working all-purpose detector ( but many which claim to be able to do so are actually dummies )

keep it simple. declare a socks4 server and see if that works. socks is semi-binary protocol so it's a pita to use socks with telnet. note that socks5 servers usually speak socks4
