Re: System wide proxy in Debian Jessie

Great suggestion! Yeah, actually for some reason that slipped my mind ... if it's just a local system you're concerned with, iptables can easily redirect your web traffic to the local running proxy (whatever it is).

What you need is a "transparent proxy". This is setup in the background with iptables and squid. It will ensure that all IP traffic is routed through the proxy. Regardless of invidual app settings or environment variables.

I had this running a few years ago and it worked perfectly. But I can not recall the detailed setup anymore. Just google "transparent proxy" and you will find your way.
