On my Android 7 and 8 devices: adb shell settings put global http_proxy <address>:<port> Seems the setting is lost at reboot, however.

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) network.proxy....

Long tap on the network you want to configure. Then select 'modify network'. Scroll down and check ' show advanced settings'

Your http://xxx.com/proxy.pac is not a proxy server, it is the address to a proxy automatic configuration (PAC) file. A PAC file contains a Javascript function that determines which proxy address to use and/or whether you're allowed to go direct when connecting to a particular URL. ProxyDroid (requires root) claims to support proxy configuration using PAC ...

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 ...

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.

This solution worked for me. Just enter the following command in a terminal (change PROXYIP:PROXYPORT ) iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -o eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to PROXYIP:PROXYPORT Source: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/android-x86/XfIRyHQ5nmk I had too tried all your commands without success. I was stuck behind a proxy trying to setup ...

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 ...

According to Bluestack employee Deepika Sharma: Currently, we do not support proxy settings in BlueStacks App Player but will definitely consider it in our future release. This information came from their help forum thread: No network access behind a proxy. Alex Guerrieri answered stating that it was able to workaround this issue uising the application ...

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 ...

Servers Ultimate is an advanced app for turning your phone into a server. By the same developer, Proxy Server offers a more basic and solely "Proxy Server based" approach. As stated on its description: Run your own Proxy Server on your device! The app can handle HTTP and HTTPS protocols and GET/POST requests. You can even set the app to forward all ...

The wifi proxy settings are still configured under the advanced options for your wifi network. The reason you can't find them is just bad Android UX. They're in a scrollable area that doesn't look scrollable (it looks like it just says 'metered'). If you try scrolling down in the wifi settings window you'll see it immediately.

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, ...

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.

If you have cleared your Google Service Framework data to receive 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 won't connect to the Google servers properly and refuse to work for a while (this was like 24~48 hours for me, ...

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 ...

Just disable captive portal detection. In the terminal, or in adb shell, issue the command settings put global captive_portal_detection_enabled 0 and reboot.

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 ...

require root for some reason It requires root because the global proxy setting is a secure system settings; on nonrooted devices, only system apps (like the Settings app) can modify secure system settings. Imagine if just any app can modify your global proxy setting, you can inadvertantly be redirecting all your internet traffics to some shady server ...

As stated by Lie Ryan's answer, the proxy.pac file is a javascript file. In the Proxy Settings on your Android, you can only enter the address, port number, and sometimes a username and password. What you can do is either ask your SysAdmin for the Proxy Server and Port Number, or just look at the file yourself. On a system that's already on the network, ...

If you're just interested in setting a proxy up over your Wifi, you can do that with Servers Ultimate quite easily, but I don't know why anyone would really want to do that. A much more useful option is to use mobile data, but as @Kevin said you're going to hit a lot of headaches, namely at the ISP level (Verizon, AT&T, etc). Chances are you won't get ...

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.

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 TMG.academy.(...

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 ...

Should this question stay afloat: I recently created a VPN tunnel from my Android devices to my home Win7 PC and it was much easier than I thought. I'm running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), but this setup also worked with 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and should work with other versions too. First, I had to find a way to create a VPN server. OpenVPN looked awesome ...

The other answers are way out of date. BlueStacks installations now includes a command-line utility HD-ConfigHttpProxy.exe to setup a proxy connection. I can't find documentation for this utility anywhere but it's pretty basic: Using Bluestacks with a Proxy Server Open Bluestacks (it has to be open before running the utiity) Open a **command prompt (eg. ...
