Using Android version 4.3 In the "modify network" sub menu when you configure a proxy it says; "The HTTP proxy is used by the browser but may not be used by other apps." So is this exclusively for the browser and apps that choose to respect your proxy settings only? I want to route all traffic going in and out through a paid private proxy with no exceptions over wifi only. I'm thinking VPN is a no-go because each phone will be using a lot of bandwidth. I want to initially do this with 50 phones and later scale up to 250. Am I going about this all wrong? Would assigning each phone a static IP (on my end) and configuring router settings to use the proxy IPs be more appropriate? Do I have to do both regardless? I'm at a bit of a loss... I don't know much about networking or proxies. (obviously) but I'm pretty technical and just need a push in the right direction.
