Windows 7: Directing traffic via proxy for one domain only

Directing traffic via proxy for one domain only

Hi All

I want traffic to a specific secure website(* to go through a Proxy server and port - on port 1818

Now, I know under Internet Options, you can specify a proxy address, but then all traffic will go through that Proxy. I want to direct traffic ONLY to * to go through the proxy.

Do you perhaps set this in the hosts file like this: 1818 *
But I don't think this will work Any idea how to do this? certainly it must be possible?

The hosts file is only for DNS mappings so by doing that your machine will try to request the proxy server for any paypal webpages which it won't have unless cached.

What is your need for directing traffic to that domain name only through the proxy? If you wish to explicitly deny access then an Access-List on a router could do the job or you could just set the proxy server as the default gateway and force all traffic that do not belong on the clients subnet to pass through the proxy.

If you could help us determine why the need is then it may help us to find a possible alternative to completing such task.

Hi, I have the same need for directing data traffic through a proxy server only for 3 addresses, I live in a country where all websites that contain the word "proxy" are blocked, and I play a game that I need to keep playing through the direct connection, but for some mod I've recently installed "player statistics" it uses its own servers which *all of them* contain the word "proxy"...the result is: they're blocked and the mod doesn't work...

The same thread was posted in Stack Exchange by the same person, unfortunately the *only* reply was very disappointing, it suggested using another web browser which doesn't help in my case.

Thanks in advance.
