  I am using tunnel mechanism only to connect to But I
  am getting HTTP/1.0 500 Server Error in response. Error 5XX means 
  server failed to fulfill an apparently valid request. So I feel at port 2628 does not support any http requests.

  Gnet has some socket/socks support but comment at
  suggest that SOCKS implementation is experimental. May be we can get
  support by 2.2. And I don't think it is very good idea to use some
third party
  library(even if it is free). I am not familiar with proxy stuff. So I
can not 
  write some socks support on my own.
