The above link only talks about client side solutions.  I could see how rdr
(which I understand to be the same as NAT?) could work, except it needs
to be redirected to a program that then routes the traffic through the socks
server?  I have not been able to find such a program (and the above socks
clients only act as a wrapper for other programs?).

Perhaps a simple program that gets the redirected incoming traffic [like
squid does] but then just connects to the destination server (with a socks
wrapper doing the routing through the socks server)??? Or just a socks
based solution?
