    What is a Proxy/Socks Chain?

The concept of this is quite simple. A Proxy Server Chain is when multiple Proxy Servers are linked together. This is done for many reasons, from bypassing security restrictions, to providing extended Anonymity for connections.

Your computer connects to the first Proxy Server in the Chain, then requests that it connect to the second Proxy Server, which then Connects to the third Proxy Server and so on. At the end of the Chain, the last Proxy Server then makes a connection to the intended Host and data transmission starts.

This can only be done with Socks or SSL Proxy Servers. It also can be quite unreliable.
