We do not support sending SOCKS5 requests directly to the proxy zones, but in our Proxy Manager, every port that is created listens by default to HTTP/HTTPS and SOCKS5.

See an example of SOCKS5 request using curl on port 24000:

curl -x socks5h://localhost:24000 http://lumtest.com/myip.json

The same 24000 port can be used for HTTP like this:

curl --proxy localhost:24000 http://lumtest.com/myip.json
