    Sorry about the last Socksification thread ladies, I meant to just edit one of the posts but the whole thing got deleted.

    The difference between HTTP and Socks proxies is that HTTP type proxies can only mask HTTP connections, while Socks can mask pretty much anything that connects to the internet in any way. So HTTP can do X, and Socks can do X, Y, and Z. HTTP just does browsers, Socks does browsers, programs, anything. Capisce?

    The easiest way to make use of Socks in that capacity that I've found currently is a program called "Proxyfirewall", found here. Download it, install, load it up, and let's get started.

    [​IMG]
    Alright, no setup necessary, let's rock n' roll. Click the Open Proxies tab, then "Add Proxies" and it'll bring you here:

    [​IMG]
    Take your Socks list (which you should have handy from here and here) and slap it in. Once they're loaded, click "OK", then back in the main Open Proxies tab click "Check Proxies" and you'll get this:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Settings are fine, you're used to it from Charon, right? Adjust if you want to, otherwise just click "Run Proxy Check" and let it sort out all the ones it wants to use. Proxyfirewall uses its own checking system, so it'll likely spit out all your 4's and questionable 5's without asking. If you only intend to use your Socks lists for this purpose, it's not a horrible idea to just take your Leeched list and throw it directly into Proxyfirewall since you won't need to check it twice. You could also just check in Charon and then paste that list into Proxyfirewall and start using it right away. Just a matter of preference and experimentation.

    [​IMG]
    Go to the "Rules" tab and add the program you intend to Socksify. Here I'm throwing in Firefox for easy browsing shenanigans. If you attempt to connect to the internet with any program while proxyfirewall is running, it will ask you if you want to Socksify it or not before letting it through (just like a regular firewall). So make sure to allow everything ahead of time and Socksify what you intend to put through a proxy.

    [​IMG]
    Select "Single" from the dropdown menu and then navigate to "Open Proxy" and select any of the "Socks" proxies you just added. Then just finish editing the settings for that particular program's proxy rules and you're done.

    The settings above are standard for when I'm doing something like posting torrents or making e-mails/profiles/random accounts. "Rotate Randomly" just means that the IP list won't go in order, it will select a random IP from the list every time it has to switch.

    [​IMG]
    Of special note is the "Manual Toolbar" option, which allows you to quickly change the IP for any program Proxyfirewall is managing with a single click. Use it.


    [​IMG]
    Voila! Every time Firefox opens while Proxyfirewall is open, Proxyfirewall will force it to go through the proxy it's set to. As mentioned earlier, this can be done for any program that connects to the internet, online games, anything. Just set Proxyfirewall on it and lock it down.

    If you want to have a machine strictly hunting/leeching/checking proxies incessantly, look into Proxyfire (not to be confused with Proxyfirewall). It's kind of overwhelming to deal with until you're well established in the proxy lifestyle and all, but it has a lot of customization and automated features available.

    Newbie warning!! OK, so I followed the steps and I think I got everything right, I got a list of proxies, tested them with charon and export/imported to proxyfirewall...but when I go to access a webpage it doesn't work. I set up the rules to rotate open proxies and all, but when I go to any page it just says "IE cannot display this page", no matter what site I went to...any advice?

    I'm having a similar problem. I do all of the above, my IE does open sites with the proxyfirewall rule set up for it, but when I check the ip via whatsmyipaddress.com it doesn't change. It's just my IP. Am I missing something? Isn't the IP supposed to change?

    Nevermind. I figured it out. I am using vista & that was affecting the program somehow. I noticed that the firewall initialization was failing, so I fiddled around & tried running the program as an administrator. This seemed to fix the problem. Now the ip's are changing :)

    Hey Apekiller,

    If SOCKS proxies do much more than HTTP proxies, then why would I need HTTP proxies ..?

    if socks is your preferred proxy, sockschain and sockscap work well for these.

    It's all about quality proxies. If you try chaining with crap, high latency, public (aka busy) foreign proxies, you won't have results. Use private proxies when you are testing these methods to ensure it isn't the proxy that is causing you problems ;)

    I'm having a problem with Proxyfirewall. Everytime I tried to start it, my computer freezes and The only thing I can only do is restart it..:(

    Are there any alternatives to Proxyfirewall?
