What is Proxychains ?
Proxychains – a tool that forces any TCP connection made by any given application to follow through proxy like TOR or any other SOCKS4, SOCKS5 or HTTP(S) proxy.
Supported auth-types: “user/pass” for SOCKS4/5, “basic” for HTTP.
proxyresolv – DNS resolving. Used to resolve host names via proxy or TOR.
When to use it ? What for ? Why ?
When you want two (or more) different proxies in chain:
your_host <–></–> proxy 1 (TOR) <–></–> proxy 2 (HTTP or SOCKS4/5) <–></–> target_host
You may need it when the only way out from your LAN is through proxy server.
Or to get out from behind restrictive firewall that filters some ports in outgoing traffic.
And you want to do that with some app like telnet. Indeed you can even access your home LAN from outside via reverse proxy if you set it. Use external DNS from behind any proxy/firewall. Use TOR network with SSH and friends.

How to Configure Tor with Proxychains :
To Configure Tor with proxy chains we gonne edit the proxychains.conf file.
root@kali:~# nano /etc/proxychains.conf
root@kali:~# gedit /etc/proxychains.conf
With this file open, uncomment out the “dynamic_chains” line. This will enable dynamic chaining of our proxies allowing for greater anonymity and trouble-free hacking.
To get proxychains to use intermediary proxies, we simply need to add the IP addresses of the proxies we want to use here.
How To Use Proxychains :
Fore example we gonna use proxychains in nmap scan :
root@kali:~# proxychains nmap -sS 188.8.131.52
