Is it possible to add some type of client software functioning through adding local proxy so that the software could be customized to use local proxy and so the tunnel or not?

As an example - Perfect-Privacy SSH tunnel software.

XY problem? What do you really want to achieve? Maybe only route specific apps through the VPN?

Yes, that's what I'v said. Is there howto for windows to do that (if there is no info about target adresses)?

As for me the most simple way is the local proxy software. You just set the local proxy in your app and all the traffic from this app goes through the tunnel, also no traffic bypasses the tunnel if the software is down.

 I don't undestand this slang.

Take a look at these little guides.

XY is when you want to achieve X, but you don't know how. You think that Y can solve the problem, but you don't know Y either. So you ask how to do Y rather than directly asking how to do X.

It's not howto, it's some set of crutches. Howto is an instruction that does not require much study.

I do know how to get what I need, the example is in the first post. I have explained in detail what it is for because you would ask that any way.

I'm sorry, but if you ask if it's possible to use a local software to proxy certain apps through while the actual problem is how to include/exclude apps from being routed through the VPN, it most certainly looks like XY. You are asking for the proxy, after all, since you think this is the solution because a competitor solved it like that. What is possible with Perfect Privacy doesn't need to be possible with AirVPN – and vice versa.

I never called it a how-to, I used the word guide. It's not there to be followed blindly but offers guidance to try and build something on your own. If you're not willing to do so, you should look for other solutions elsewhere.

To answer the original question whether it's possible: Not like this. Given that you are not exactly willing to study for the guide up there, you won't be satisfied with AirVPN, because all solutions will most likely require you to tinker a bit.

I'v been asking about something comfortable for the user. You do understand clearly that I'm talking about AirVPN taking over all the work in providing something it's users need. As an example I gave the PerfectPrivacy SSH soft, I have also explained in details what is needed. But you answer "Go make yourself what you need" and joking about some blablabla problems. Sounds like you just mocking.

As I see in your last post AirVPN is not going to take over any work in providing what is needed. You could answer that in the first post without all this useless text.

The solution I'v offered would require an absolute minimum of actions from the user. This what is called comfortable.

If I would need  a solution how to rout a specific app through the tunnel with existing software I would ask in that way. But I have asked about adding something comfortable for the user, some "take and use" solution.

But I'v only asked about a how-to. If you answer the question "Is there a how-to?" than you call your solution a how-to, simple logic.

Okay, if you write so. There's no how-to, then.
