What are socks5 proxies

What are SOCKS5 proxy servers?

A SOCKS5 proxy server is a proxy server that works for any type of network protocol on any port and establishes a connection to a server on behalf of a user, then routes traffic between the user and the server.

When you use SOCKS5 proxy protocol with Bright Data, the Proxy Manager converts any requests to port 80 or port 443 to http and https requests, so you don’t have to worry about which format is accepted by your target site. With any other port, the traffic is sent as-is between the user and the host.
