In this case, the host socks.ssh.com and port 1080 (default) are used as your SOCKS server for connections outside of networks 126.96.36.199 (16-bit domain) and 188.8.131.52 (8-bit domain). Those networks are connected directly. If this option is used, it should almost always contain the local loopback network (127.0.0.0/8) as a network that is connected directly.
If a SOCKS proxy is used, select its type. Available options are SOCKS4 and SOCKS5. This setting has no effect with an HTTP proxy.
