Are you sure you need Tor for all youtube videos? If you only need youtube access, then you should try alternative lower latency circumvention techniques, like alternative DNS providers or a VPN. Tor should be used when you're worried about your government even knowing what you watch, meaning countries like Iran, China, Syria, etc. Case 1. You care about ...

As pointed out by Al's comment above, it's not a question of which browser does support it, but rather of how to enable it. And as Sachin's comment suggests, available solutions depend on whether your device is rooted (more and better possibilities) or not. non-rooted devices As long as it's for the browser only, there are multiple easy solutions. So does ...

Make sure your proxy server is not blocking video streaming. If connectify is broadcasting an internet connection which is already established thru proxy, Android has got system-wide proxy connection. So, there's no need to setup proxy in particular player. Sometimes, proxy servers limit the speed of video streaming & even block it. So, get this info ...

If you have an (W)LAN network connected to an ADSL modem at your home, a mobile access point is like that ADSL modem; a mobile access point (AP) translates between the protocol of the mobile network to the protocol of the wider Internet. Imagine the mobile network as a LAN, and access points are the nodes in the LAN that have direct access to the Internet, ...

My apologies, I just found it. For the benefit of those who have the same problem: It should apply to the other Galaxy Tab 2 models, too.

If you have cleared your Google Service Framework data to recieve the update, it will change your device ID that google uses to recognise your device. This also affects the tokens used by some apps (i.e. google now, google search, chrome) and they wont connect to the google servers properly and refuse to work for a while (this was like 24~48 hours for me, ...

By default, as soon as WiFi gets connected, the mobile network shuts down -- so you cannot use both simultaneously. Which means: no, even a proxy allowing for exceptions would not do, as the other network simply is no longer available. Quoting from CyanogenMod Tracker: Each time you activate WiFi you'll lose 3g connection. That's normal behaviour of ...

If Joe's device is rooted and Joe has a server (with full SSH access) running somewhere on internet, Joe should use SSH Tunnel app with socks proxy option checked (for dynamic port forwarding). There's no need to install VPN server or proxy server. There's no need to do complicated configurations on server. Plus, Joe's data will be secured inside powerful ...

Your router in the office is blocking ports - while accepting port 80 for http requests. Contact your administrator. I know , at my office , our admin had to change some settings ( but I don't know what ports were necessary ).

Not an answer to your question exactly, but it solves the main issue. I have coded a solution for this, you can download the apk on http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1083284. It uses a cntlm binary to process the authentication.

According to this, you need an external app and you need to root the phone. Some other solutions shared in a Google Code issue thread. Update: Using Gesture Search, I entered "proxy" and got to the Proxy settings on my Droid. Don't know how to get there otherwise, and don't know if it actually works, but there you go. (Someone else mentioned it in that ...

For GSM devices, as far as I know, the proxy settings for your mobile data connection are defined in the Access Point Name (APN). Go to Settings > Wireless and Networks > More > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names > [Your data APN] (your device's menu may differ slightly). Check the Proxy field - it's possible this got modified somehow. Might ...

It seems to be a known "feature" if you use Kaspersky Internet Security: http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?s=8ffe1c0b8684d5bd3d1353f0d074f528&showtopic=260035 However, as you can see in the link above, it comes with a few issues. Disabling the 'web protection' component seems to do the trick.

Wifi proxy settings were not added until Android 3.0 (here's the issue on the tracker and here is the comment noting its release). If you're willing to root your device you could try something like TransProxy, though.

It's up to the app to fetch the proxy settings from the system prior to making the first connection. If a app does not do this and your local firewall prevents outgoing connections without the proxy, it will not work. You should contact your app developer about this problem and ask him to fix this.

My Samsung Galaxy S II has proxy settings enabled under Settings > Wireless & Network > Wifi settings > Advanced I can set a proxy address and a port number. The proxy I'm sitting behind requires authentication tho and I'm having trouble finding these settings.

Hmmm. Did you definitely tick the 'Transparent Proxy' option? That tells it to make everything go through the proxy. Another thing I have noticed when using it is that it can be quite specific with a proxy - my school uses microsoft tmg, and has the proxy as 'tmg' in browsers, but proxydroid needs the full URL to the system (which is ...

I see this blog post explaining how to configure APN settings to browse through a proxy. At first, I could not believe that the APN mentioned (as TelKila) in the post will be available in my emulator. But to my surprise I find a APN is available though with a different name (as T-Mobile US). Since I do not have a proxy server environment, I could not ...

I have a Galaxy S4 and use ConnectBot to connect to my SSH server and setup a port forward via the client to port 8080. Then setup Firefox to use the SOCKS proxy by just going to About:Config and entering the following: network.proxy.socks: 127.0.0.1 network.proxy.socks_port: 8080 (or whatever port you chose to forward in ConnectBot) ...

Simple answer: No. Long answer: No, as these app use a native binary installed onto the system to reroute data through the proxy. This is done at kernel level (actually it's done using the terminal commands, but it is done at kernel level), because of this root access is needed. There are 0 apps that allow you to use a proxy without rooting first. Android ...

Short answer: No, proxy apps available on the playstore all need root (to my knowledge). But you can use the native proxy -- even with Android 2.1. Longer answer: As Liam wrote in his answer, an explicit proxy requires kernel level access. But Android has a native proxy built in. Before Android 4.x, its settings were simply hidden. So all you need is ...

There are multiple solutions. As you have Android 4.x, long-pressing on a WiFi APN in Settings→Networks & Wireless→WiFi lets you edit an APN. Check the "Advanced" box, and you can configure the proxy. Though this form does not offer separate fields for username/password, here's a trick how to do it: For the server name, enter ...

Did you switch from "Mobile data" to "WLAN" (also "Wifi" or "Wi-Fi" on SAMSUNG) last time for surfing in internet? If yes, then try this! Sometimes when you enable "WLAN" before disabling "Mobile data" (top line, near the battery-charge-state or the current-date/time) the proxy settings for GSM will stay and be used for you WLAN! All you need to do is: ...

There are several proxy apps available to accomplish something like that. Though most of them require root access to the device, not all do (I have not tested any of them, so I cannot tell in detail). However, a different approach might be checking into VPN apps, as that's pretty much what you targeting: a Virtual Private Network, where your server acts as ...
