Force software that doesn't have proxy settings to use proxy

How would I force software that doesn't have proxy settings to use a proxy server that is setup.

If the server is external to the host then you may be able to set up a redirect in the router.

If the server is running on the same host then you may be able to do something similar in software. How you do this will depend on the OS you are using.

There's a good chance that such software will use the OS settings for proxy servers.

I recall windows software that would "capture" an application and feed it's traffic through a SOCK4/5 proxy. That was long time ago; every major browser supports direct configuration of proxy settings now.

Does your proxy server have a "transparent" mode?
