outbound (proxy) node support

Allow client to configure outbound (proxy) node. The similar
functionality is already implemented by Tor and it gives possibility
to select several low-latency peers to improve performance.

This might be handy for nodes in corporate networks with restricted or no internet access.

Are you asking for ability to use an HTTP proxy to transport all I2P traffic through a corporate firewall? Or some other type of proxy?

Or do you want to connect using the standard I2P transport protocols, but only to one (or a few) peers who will relay all the traffic? This is what we call "restricted routes".

Primary request is to relay all the traffic through several, manually selected (trusted) peers. Let's say, we have one edge I2P node, with both WAN and LAN links, and large LAN network with nodes, connecting to the rest of I2P network via this node, though all interconnection happens within LAN segment without relay.

HTTP Proxy / Socks proxy would be good addition, but this is rather bonus.

This is one use case for a feature we call "restricted routes", which has been on the far, far, far distant roadmap since the beginning of I2P 9 years ago. It's no closer now.

See http://www.i2p2.i2p/todo and http://zzz.i2p/topics/114

It's quite complex, as there are a lot of possible use cases, and a lot of options on how to do it.
