SSH2 with SOCKS5 proxy

lightbringer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, I have successfully established SSH2 connection by using Perl. Now I would like to connect through a SOCKS5 proxy. And when I look at the manual of Net::SSH2, it seems to have no support to create such connection. Anyone knows how to do that? I have looked at NET::Perl::SSH but they say it was too old and hasn't been updated for a long time. Thanks in advance.

    You can pass an open socket to Net::SSH2 connect instead of the host/port pair.

    So you can create the socket, connect to the proxy and do the SOCKS5 handshake yourself and then call $ssh->connect($socket).

    If you are on Linux/Unix you could even use an external program as socat to do the handshaking for you.
