Description

https://gitweb.torproject.org/torspec.git/tree/socks-extensions.txt

The spec leaves multiple open questions:

  • What does "initiates a remote lookup of the hostname" mean?

The spec could be improved by saying "A" or/and "AAAA" DNS lookup is performed.

  • There is no information about the response in torspec.git/tree/socks-extensions.txt at all
