Proxify applications without proxy support
If your Internet application does not support any proxy settings, you can use
proxyfier tools to redirect the traffic to JonDonym and hide your IP address.
Usually this just works
with premium services as you can only route traffic
through the free services which goes to destination ports 80 or 443. These ports
are usually used for web browsing.
Other Internet protocols are using different ports.
To configure your proxyfier tool two steps are required. At first you have to configure the proxy for anonymization. Use the following settings:
- Type: HTTP (preferred) or SOCKS v5
- Host: 127.0.0.1
- Port: 4001
- enable "resolve hostnames remotly"
In the second step you have to set up rules or rulesets for applications
which should get redirected to the proxy. You have two options to achieve this:
- Redirect only a list of
applications: You can create a list of applications. Only for the
applications on this list the Internet traffic will go through JonDonym.
- JonDonym-VPN: Setup a
list of exceptions. The traffic of applications on the exception list will NOT
get redirected to JonDo. This list has to contain the JonDo proxy programm
"JAP.exe". The Internet traffic of all your other
applications will get redirected through JonDonym.
A short list of recommended proxyfier tools:
Proxyfier for Windows and MacOS
You can proxify your Internet applications with Proxyfier.
It redirects the traffic of the Flash player, Java applets and other Internet
applications through JonDonym. You may test it for free for 31 days, afterwards you have to buy a license key. Proxyfier is not freeware.
ProxyCap for Windows and MacOS
For Windows and MacOS we suggest ProxyCap as well to proxify your
Internet applications. ProxyCap is not freeware either.
You can download a free 30-day trial version. After 30 days you have to buy
a license key. Please support JonDonym: Buy ProxyCap here! (JonDos gets 20% of the revenue).
Widecap for Windows
For Windows you can use WideCap to proxify your
applications. You can use Widecap for free but it is not under development
anymore and does not run well on newer Windows versions.
proxychains for Linux and UNIX
All Linux and UNIX distributions contain proxychains and it is
possible to install it with your preferred package manager. You can use it to
redirect the traffic of an Internet application to JonDo if you are using
Restrictions for the Dresden (JAP) anonymisation servers
After careful consideration we have decided to restrict the size of downloads over the Dresden (JAP) mixes a little. The reason is to allow a more fair use of scarce resources of our servers especially for users who simply want to surf the Web. more...
