    Ok... I'm looking to run a very basic application that doesn't support proxy connections through a proxy. Found lots of ways to do it in Linux, but I'm in Windows on a crappy little Belkin router. Already checked and there's no aftermarket firmware for this router, otherwise I could burn some decent firmware and modify iptables to reroute all traffic to the proxy.

    I found the Proxycfg utility in windows that basically does what I'm looking for... reroutes all traffic to a specific proxy, except that it only applies to HTTP and HTTPS connections. The application in question uses a straight TCP connection.

    Is there any software or any way in windows to simply reroute all traffic to a proxy?

    couldn't you just use the host file for this?

    If the application is so basic, why not rewrite it?
