I need a bit more clarification on these options, I am not sure I understand it correctly.
To avoid confusion between terms (client, server, socks, proxy, etc), I better explain exactly what I am doing:

I use commands like torsocks with wget to get content from .onion website(s), like so:

torsocks wget somewebsite12345.onion/file.html

but network is not very reliable and I want to try that from additional locations (additional "tor clients" I guess).

I understand I can configure my additional servers to connect to tor, I did this by enabling this in my second server torrc file:

# listen on own server 2 IP

# allow connections from server 1 IP
SOCKSPolicy accept
SOCKSPolicy reject *

So now from my server I can connect to tor network using second server like this:

torsocks --address wget somewebsite12345.onion/file.html

But my server 1 IP is not static, considering all the many options inside torrc and torsocks.conf , is there an option to configure autentication for the above ? (So I can then set server 2 torrc file to allow connections from any ip).
