I want to run an exit node, but don't want to risk having to deal with rouge DMCA complaints. I also have (pay for) a high-bandwidth SOCKS5 proxy. I would like to route all exit traffic from my node through this proxy; this will also let me set a less restrictive exit policy.

Is there any way to do this easily? I've looked at torrc options, and it seems like the Socks5Proxy option nearly does what I want, but doesn't.


No. There's no mechanism for this in Tor, you'll need to deal with routing the outbound traffic yourself.

You should also note that the address your relay is listening/running on will be linked to the address that you exit from, it will be observed by CollecTor's TorDNSEL and distributed in the list of Tor Exits.
