    was wondering if anyone knew of any fast public socks servers. I dont trust my landlord (whom i get my internet from) and want to protect against packet sniffing and i believe this can be accomplished through SOCKSv5.

    i found a list of SOCKSv5 servers at and have tried a few but none of them seem to work reliably.

    it would also help if anyone knew of a program where i could just enter all the addresses from that site and let it sort the results so i could find the one with the best latency, because trying to ping them one at a time takes WAY to long.

    There aren't going to be alot of free public ones as it is a serious security risk for the user running them. Anyone can go through them and make it look like the guy running the server is doing illegal/dangers things.

    As for worrying about your lanlord, don't. As long as all the important websites you go to have SSL, and you are not doing anything illegal, then you have nothing to worry about.
