Sometimes I need to use proxy servers to connect another hosts, I use http://proxychains.sourceforge.net/ for that.

This little patch adds support of proxychains to sshmenu totally same way as for bcvi :-)

Only thing what I did not tested, whether bcvi and proxychains can operate together, maybe there is no any meaning of this, but I kept this usage enabled.

The attached patch made against version 3.14 in debian lenny, hopefully you can apply it easily.

    Hi thanks for the patch.

    I don't plan on integrating the patch into the mainline SSHMenu codebase, since I don't want to take on the maintenance burden.

    I have specifically designed SSHMenu to allow people to add local modification such as this without modifying the core code. I suggest you refactor your patch into a separate module that overrides core methods as described in this article:

    http://sshmenu.sourceforge.net/articles/sshtelnetmenu.html

    That will allow you to retain your custom behaviour when the core SSHMenu code is updated.

    Cheers
    Grant
