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

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?

      I just bought VIP and a script. I can't get Proxies to work or Looking glass to work. If I can't get anything to work I'll be getting a refund.
    • By OliverandFelix
      When using looking glass do I still connect to Runescape using the proxy selected through Tribot, or will the mirrored client run through my main ip adress as osbuddy has no option to use a proxy?

      This release will:
      Fix Settings UI placement bug Fix game object location bug Fix small layout bug making the client shift up and down Fix client crashing bug where loading the client with a small display area will cause the client to crash Fix annoying Linux bug relating to painting events and peers Fix settings saving bug where settings are saved to disk more often than they should Fix RSInterface#isBeingDrawn bug affecting a limited amount of people Drop Java 1.7 bytecode version for 1.8 Important: Since the downloadable RS client uses Java 7, it will no longer be compatible with Looking Glass. To make up for this, we will add support for using other clients such as RuneLite (at a later date). This change was necessary to allow us to use Java 8 syntax. It also paves the way for Java 9/10/11 support. Edit: Release 9.312_1 will:
      Fix LG GZIP error Fix Client Starter for Linux 🙌

      I've nearly got TRiBot running on an Ubuntu machine but have run into an error with the loader.  When I run the loader for the first time and it populates the dependencies folder, the file togl.dll get's downloaded instead of libTOGL.so which TRiBot.jar eventually looks for.  Error looks like this:
      Loading TOGL Loading: /home/<user>/.tribot/dependancies/libTOGL.so Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-1" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Can't load library /home/<user>/.tribot/dependancies/ibTOGL.so Inside my dependencies folder there's a file called togl.dll.  The bug report forum says I need to post here before I can post there.

    • This release includes:

      Fix updater bug which was causing a bunch of issues


      TRiBot will no longer require manual hook fixes every time the RS client updates - the updater has been fully patched for objects


      Hooked login fields


      Improved the login bot


      Ability to recognize the banned/locked messages again


      Ability to read the current input for username and password fields


      If the username or password is already entered correctly, it won't be erased


      If only part of the username or password is already entered correctly, it won't be erased. The login bot will fill in what's missing.


      If there are a few invalid characters after a valid substring of your username/password, only (approximately) those invalid characters will be erased. The login bot will then proceed to fill in the missing characters.





      Coming soon:

      Skull icon fix


      Improve screen rate and responsiveness of the RS client (both regular client and LG)


      Much more

      Fix hooks



      RS3 Support Removed

      The RS3 client hasn't been updated since our Old-School version of TRiBot was released, as many of you may have noticed. Keeping all of the RS3 code in the client made the client as a whole harder to maintain, larger, slower, and messier. As hardly anyone still uses the RS3 client, and since the RS3 API was hardly functioning, we made the decision to completely remove it from TRiBot.

      For the average user, this means that the client will be smaller, cleaner, and faster. Future updates will also take less work meaning there will be more frequent updates.

      If you were one of the few users still using the RS3 client, we apologize for the inconvenience. No future support for RS3 is planned. There are many other botting clients which has support for RS3, so we recommend finding an alternative if you wish to continue botting on RS3.

    • Please welcome our new developers, @JoeDezzy1, @erickho123, @Encoded, and @wastedbro.

      These members will be responsible for working on, maintaining, and improving TRiBot.

      This means that bug fixes and improvements will now come at a much faster pace! We're committed to providing users with the best botting experience possible!
