System-wide network proxy support.

Overview

MacProxy provides system-wide network proxy support for the Mac. It forwards network traffic from applications that do not support proxies and avoids complex setup for applications that do. MacProxy allows you to surf the Internet from behind a firewall, connect securely when using public Wi-Fi networks, and navigate the Internet without being tracked. Create profiles which include proxies, rules, and DNS settings. Profiles may be imported and exported (XML) so they can be shared with others. MacProxy supports a variety of SOCKS and HTTP proxy protocols, integrated SSH tunnel support, and proxy chains. Add rules that specify which proxy to use, connect directly, or block the connection. MacProxy provides a simple and intuitive user interface via a menubar menulet control and a System Preferences pane. Use the menulet to quickly change the active profile and check the current status.

This works very well on 10.6.1 for all applications I could find (Including WoW -- which required a realmlist.wtf mod for battle.net login). I had previously tried tsocks and proxifier, but I do not believe that either have snow leopard support. My current setup is remote login to a unix server, configuring it as a socks proxy w/ tunnel, and telling MacProxy to connect to localhost. (ssh -ND 9999 user@myunixserver, and then using localhost:9999 as proxy). My only 2 complaints at this time (after using the trial for a few minutes) is that MacProxy leave a process running when it is disabled and without menu icon. Why? Also, I got my first kernel panic in slow leopard after clicking disable MacProxy. Will consider buying after more testing.

This is not intended for home users to anonymize their IP address (which is what I installed it for), but to access websites that are blocked in the workplace. The developer said "MacProxy is generally useful if you need to use a proxy server (for work, organizations, etc. that require a proxy to access outside content)." They also said "The default rules don’t generally need to be modified for most users." But I was unable to access ANY website using the default settings and had to uncheck a box. It seems to be useless with Safari - the only way I've been able to create a working Safari proxy is in Network Preferences, but that's a pain because it rarely works on every website, so I often have to de-activate it, therefore I leave my System Preferences open all the time since I need to access them frequently. This would be much faster if I could simply use the MacProxy menu item when necessary. And for some reason even when I have no proxy enabled in Network Preferences, if I enable MacProxy it really slows down the loading of webpages even though my IP address hasn't been changed. If I uncheck the "Loopback" box in the MacProxy rules, then Safari works alright. So that makes two default settings that I must disable in order for Safari to function normally. And then I must enable the Network proxy to change my IP address.

Tried Proxifier, MacProxy and ProxyCap: Of those, I liked the interface of MacProxy the most. Clean and simple. My Score + Interface is nice + If you use an SSH Proxy, MacProxy will manage the connection for you + Switching proxies can be done via Menubar O Installs as a pref pane (I prefer this for apps like this, YMMV) - Could not find a way to get SSH Public Key authentication to work. Compare to competition - Proxifier offers more flexible rule management (Wildcards even in Application name), but does not manage SSH connections. Got nice traffic display as well - ProxyCap offers Proxy Chaining and SSH Public Key auth Finally I'd like to say, that during my tests all of the Applications tested were working without causing any trouble.
