Flickr has closed its http api leaving an https only api. My favourite uploader (the official Flickr Uploadr version 2.5 running under wine) is no longer maintained, so this change broke it.
My current solution to this is to set up a reverse proxy server to translate
https://www.flickr.com and fix my DNS so that
www.flickr.com traffic gets forwarded to this proxy server.
This works but obviously I don't want all my flickr traffic going to the proxy, just the traffic coming from the uploader.
Can I send just traffic from this app, directed to www.flickr.com, to my reverse proxy?
Is there a simpler way to achieve this? eg, forward
http://www.flickr.com straight to
https://www.flickr.com without the proxy server.
Embarrassingly the app itself has a proxy setting, so all I had to do was set this to point at my proxy server. Alternatively Giles's answer below shows how you can set a proxy for an individual Unix app and all Wine apps.
