ProxyCap has the most robust feature set of any of the 3 forced proxy applications I've tried (Proxifier and MacProxy being the other two).

Good: ProxyCap allows you to specify ssh servers as the proxy. It then manages the ssh tunnel connection. Doesn't always pick up when a tunnel is having problems and re-connect (such as over a lossy network connection) though.

Good rules support and best remote DNS resolution behavior I've tried.

Bad: Unfortunately the current version doesn't allow traffic to bypass their redirect filter entirely. This causes problems with certain applications. For example, I'm unable to get network access when using Parallels with ProxyCap.

Ugly: Not written by full time Mac developers. There are a number of cosmetic issues. Several things are done in a non-Mac standard way, such as having to import SSH keys rather than using the keychain to store the SSH key file password.

Licensing is very restrictive as a computer specific ID is required to register a computer.

I've been using Slink since version 1.0 and can't recommend it highly enough. I have tried competing products before but found them sadly lacking in features and simplicity. Slink delivers on both counts.

For example, iTunes Home Sharing access is wonderful to have when away from home. SOCKS5 support gives me peace of mind while using hotspots when traveling. And the simplicity... check "Always Keep Connected" and Slink does it. No muss, no fuss.

I have encountered a few bugs. The developer has always been quick to respond and to address the problem.

If you want to access your home network remotely this is the tool to use. I wish more Mac developers would put as much energy and attention into their products.
