How to use the PySocks library in Python

PySocks is a Python library that provides a socket-like interface for connecting to and using SOCKS proxies. It is an easy-to-use library for developers who want to use SOCKS proxies in their Python applications.

To use PySocks, you first need to install the library. To do this, use the “pip” command to install the library from the PyPI repository.

Once the library is installed, you can import the library into your Python code.

To use the library, you will need to create a socket object, which is used to connect to the SOCKS proxy. To do this, you can use the “socks.create_connection” method, which takes the hostname and port of the SOCKS proxy as parameters.

Once the socket object is created, you can use it to send and receive data through the SOCKS proxy. To send data, you can use the “send” method, and to receive data, you can use the “recv” method.

You can also use the “set_proxy” method to change the SOCKS proxy that the socket object is connected to.

PySocks also provides other useful features such as the ability to set a timeout for connections, and the ability to set a SOCKS version.
