Having some pleasant time with Proxifier, I just wonder if that kind of software is feasible under Unix/Linux?

Is it easy to start a project like that, or are there existing projects available? Are they nearly as good as Proxifier (capture all TCP/IP packages and forward them through the proxy)?

you can try ProxyChains and Tor

I don't see why you include tor. If I understend the question it is about proxifing the software (otherwise - good answer). – Maciej Piechotka Aug 23 '10 at 23:04
accepting your answer under the proxy via proxychains – phunehehe Aug 24 '10 at 6:20
Tor shouldn't be included. Though it gets the job done, it's not meant for purposes like this. – SPRajagopal Jan 1 '14 at 11:47

There is tproxy. Alternativly you can use SocksTun + iptables if you cannot control preload veriables.
