[Tutorial] Run Most Application Through a Proxy (Windows/Linux) Most Browsers and OldSchool Clients!

Recommended Posts

How to Run Most Applications Through a Proxy on both Windows and Linux

Windows Instructions

Note: Chrome and Firefox portable do not work with WideCap.

1. Download WideCap from here (http://widecap.ru/en/download/)
2. Run through the installer, and launch WideCap, you should see this screen.

3.Go ahead and click on Settings (First option under the Widecap section on the left hand side). Then uncheck the box that says Run with system startup.

4. Now go ahead and click on New proxy (First option under the proxies section on the left hand side).
5.You should see this screen, in the top field enter the IP address and port (IP:Port format). Confirm that the protocol is set to SOCKS v5 (which is the default), and tick the box for Authentication if necessary. If using an authenticated proxy, enter your username in the login field, and obviously your password in the password field. Then hit the Create New button, next to Chain, and type in a name for your Proxy, then Hit OK

6. Now that you're back to the main screen, click on the Proxy List section (Second option under the proxies section on the left hand side). Right click on your newly added proxy, and click check selected, to make sure you entered all the information correctly. If the status field rolls over to OK, you're good to go, and can move on to the next step

7. Find WideCap in your System tray, right click, and uncheck the box that says Enable Widecap.

8. Click on View Programs (Second option under the Programs section on the left hand side). Then drag and drop the icon for the application you want to proxify (run behind a proxy) into WideCap. WideCap supports the proxifying of both .exe and .jar files!

9. Right Click on your newly added program, and click on Modify Application, you should see a similar screen depending on what you added. Then click on Create New... (to create a new rule)

10. In the Chain tab, select the Proxy Chain you created earlier, then under the Main tab, give your new rule a name and hit OK. Then Hit OK again on the modify Application screen.

11. Hit Apply and OK in the main window of WideCap, and then find it in your System Tray again, but this time click the box to Enable Widecap
12.Open your Proxified application, and check to see if the proxy worked! If your IP is changed, congrats, you've got WideCap working!

Linux Instructions (Based off of a Debian Installation)

1. Open a new terminal and run this command

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y proxychains

2. Now that proxychains is installed, we're going to go ahead and create a user specific configuration file. To do this, we'll make a directory, then copy the standard proxychains configuration file to it and change the ownership of the configuration file to your user. Run the command below as your user.

mkdir ~/.proxychains/ && cp /etc/proxychains.conf ~/.proxychains/proxychains.conf && sudo chown ${USER:=$(/usr/bin/id -run)} $HOME/.proxychains/proxychains.conf && sudo chgrp ${USER:=$(/usr/bin/id -run)} $HOME/.proxychains/proxychains.confroxychains.conf

3. Once the command is finished, open the proxychains config file in your favorite Linux text editor, for ease of use, I'm going to use nano. To install nano run this command

sudo apt-get install -y nano

To edit the proxychains config file, with nano, run this command

nano ~/.proxychains/proxychains.conf

4. Now, what you'll want to do is scroll all the way down to the bottom, and you should see something like this
4837941af6.png

That last line that says

socks4    127.0.0.1    9050

That's the line we'll be editing. Firstly, we'll go ahead and erase everything on that line, don't worry we'll put it back. The format for the configuration file is

Proxy Type(lowercase) (tab) IP address (tab) Port (tab) Username (tab) Password

Therefore if your proxy was a Socks5 proxy, with an IP of 192.168.1.1, a port of 1080, a username of Fluffee and a password of TRiBot, your final line would look like this:

socks5    192.168.1.1    1080    Fluffee    TRiBot

So, go ahead and modify your last line to fit your own proxy and then hit Control+X to exit, and then hit Y to save (instructions are based off of using nano to edit the file).

5. Proxychains is now setup, but how do you use it? Go ahead and VNC into your Server and open a terminal, or open a Terminal inside your Desktop Environment (if using Linux installed on a PC). From there run the command proxychains followed by the application you would like to run, or the path to the application. For example, try running, if you have Firefox installed:

proxychains firefox

Then navigate to an IP checking website, and see if your proxy worked! :)

That concludes the tutorial on how to use a proxy with Oldschool or any browser, on both Linux and Windows. If you have any questions feel free to post in the comments!

Neither does firefox portable

You're right, Chrome is apparently incompatible with WideCap. I haven't tested Firefox portable, but I do know that the regular Firefox works fine with WideCap!

I have updated the original post to reflect this, thanks :)

Doesn't this basically just mean people can do this instead of purchasing Vip-E if they just want to use the proxy? :P

Yea, but VIP-E seems tailored towards goldfarmers and if you are running decent size goldfarm, cost of VIP-E is not that much and you are supporting development of TRiBot.

I do not recommend instal widecap, hacked after

The correlation between WideCap and you getting hacked is a coincidence and nothing more, you should however check through your PC as you've obviously picked up something nasty on the net, which you're going to need to deal with.

Love the guide, very detailed. I have one problem tho, when I right click the proxy and click "check selected" instead of status field rolling to "ok" It says "connection timed out". I assume there is something wrong with proxy? Please help this is the second proxy I have bought on Virmach both of them are timed out, whenever I try to login Tribot using them proxies I get an error message saying could not connect to specified proxy. Really appreciate some help, thanks

That's probably an issue on VirMach's end, try contacting their customer support!

Will this guide load the RS client with the same ip as the proxy? I've tried manually entering in the proxy through firefox but it doesnt seem to load the client with the proxy ip. @iFluffee

As far as I know it should, yes

You could always proxify a .jar, like OSBuddy, instead of FIrefox

Do you have to actually buy and use a proxy from widecap like it states before downloading? this is what it says when clicking on the link in the tutorial " Download full version you can from here. (4.16 MB) | Don't forget to buy the socks from 5socks.net Servicebefore download the program

is this needed or can i just download it? Or can i use it and download it by using a brwoser running one of my proxies?

You can purchase proxies from any site, they just want you to purchase from them! So no, you don't need to purchase proxies from their site!

One last thing, do you know how to check what ipaddress your osbuddy is running on? It doesnt´seem to tell you anywhere now ive checked and set everything up. 

I don't think OSBuddy has an option to show this.
But if you are using a 3rd party program like WideCap to proxy your OSBuddy, the program should let you know.

I seem to have an issue when trying to move the 32 bit jar osbuddy into it. 64bit works fine just throwing in the shortcut, but it refuses to take the jar whether i put it in the actual osbuydd folder, its just a shortcut or directly from downloads. What did any of you do to fix that? Am i missing some tricks?

      Hi I got a proxy server from Virmach. I cannot seem to get Tribot to connect to it. I have gotten a 3rd party internet browser called Maxthus to get it to work so I don't think that its the server that's not working. Yes I have VIP-E as well. Please help thanks!

      For example:  if I bought a single socks5 proxy from https://www.yourprivateproxy.com/, would it be able to proxy say 8 Tribot tabs if they all ran the same script?

      TRiBot is looking to improve a lot of its customer relationship management, customer on boarding process, customer experience, design elements, community engagement and pretty much everything else you can imagine when it comes to marketing.
      Our goal: To ensure that the marketing done TRULY reflects the experience and does not shine an inaccurate light on what TRiBot is lacking in.
      So I ask, what do you love about TRiBot and what do you hate about TRiBot? What does O S Bot, Rune M8, PowR Bot and Dre amBot do better? (yes I purposely didn't spell it right 😂).

      Debian 7.0 VPS Setup Guide for TRiBot Botting. 
      By: Flax
       
      Hey guys today I'm going to show you how to setup a VPS for TRiBot botting, I'm making it because I got so many questions from people about this & most VPS guides here are pretty outdated.
      Make sure your VPS operating system is Debian 7 32 or 64bit, or else this guide will not work for you!
      Okay, let's begin.
       
      First off you'll need these programs:
      - PuTTy
      - TightVNC Viewer
      Once you've downloaded those files we can begin setting up your VPS.
       
      Step 1: Open PuTTy and enter your IP and click connect (You should keep the port 22)

       
      Step 2: Now a command prompt will pop up and it'll ask you for a username, Type ' root ' and after that it'll ask you for a password, type in the password that was given to you by your VPS provider.
       
      Step 3: Now you should enter the following commands one-by-one, it can take awhile to install depending on the speed:
      apt-get update apt-get install curl curl https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/jabcbltmn5fuevx/install.sh | sh apt-get install iceweasel Step 4: After that's done you should be able to connect with the VPS through TightVNC.
      REMEMBER: MAKE SURE TO ADD :1 BEHIND THE IP.

       
      This is how it should look:
      Once connected, you can download TRiBot/OSBuddy via the Iceweasel browser(similiar to Firefox).
       
      If you're unable to open TRiBot, try this:

      What is the solution to changing a proxy of current client in tribot.
      I KNOW there is no OFFICIAL API for this. I KNOW there is no OFFICIAL API for this. 
      But there are definitely other ways to accomplish it, care to share?

    • Over the last three weeks, I've been working on upgrading our server infrastructure. It's finally ready and is now live!

      Why?

      Increased reliability - less server errors


      Increased availability - less downtime


      Increased security - keeping us and you secure


      Increased capacity - ability to serve you better


      Increased speed - less waiting for things to load


      Faster development - server and service updates will come faster


      What are the changes?

      Move from a single AWS EC2 instance to AWS ECS (Elastic Container Service)


      Distributed computing


      Load balancing


      Git management of server files and filesystem


      Redis caching


      How?

      AWS ECS (with 10 EC2 instances)


      AWS ElastiCache (Redis)


      AWS Load Balancing


      AWS EFS (Elastic file system)


      Please bare with us as I continue to tune the server for maximum performance. Slow loading speeds may occur temporarily. I thank everyone for their patience.

      Please post on this thread if you experience any issues other than slow loading times.

    • This release will:

      Fix prayers and world hopper API (Thanks @JoeDezzy1 and @erickho123)


      Improve banking API (Thanks @Encoded)


      Adds methods for returning and using Java Lists, rather than arrays


      Slightly randomizes some hardcoded behaviour


      Removes sleeps from waitConditions; the efficiency saving potential is negligible in these use-cases, therefore cleaner code is preferable


      Other back-end improvements





      Note: If you are using LG, please restart both the RS client and TRiBot.
