i use this syntax

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

Open in new window

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

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
