Local proxy software

Recommended Posts

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.

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.
