torsocks does not work with "connectx" (in netcat / nc)
I found that 'torify', which wraps connections outbound through Tor, did not work with "nc" (netcat) on Mac OS X in that connections exposed my true IP address. I looked further into it, and torify works with the flag to "-O" in nc (nc -O) which, according to the usage, utilizes the standard connect() system call. However, by default, netcat seems to be now using the "connectx" system call which torsocks is not hooking. I cannot find much information on "connectx" except that related to the protocol "SCTP" on BSD variants (including OS X).
Does anyone know anything about this? Is there any plans to hook calls to "connectx()" (or, from what I've found, sctp_connectx() is the call)? The protocol shows up as "tcp4" in a netstat on OS X.
nc usage flag info for -O:
-O Use old-style connect instead of connectx
