As far as I know dante can only be made "transparent" with the use of client
side software (such as the libsocks.so libraries under *nix) and not from the
server side (i.e. tunneling the traffic through a SOCKS proxy). The
way I think of
it is similar to NAT (in the capturing of traffic)?
Or am I missing something?
