Initex Software has released Proxifier for Mac OS X, an application that allows network applications which do not support working through proxy servers to operate through an HTTP or SOCKS proxy server or a chain of proxy servers. Proxifier tunnels all connections on a system or for separate applications without special configuration, and enables users to access the internet from restricted local area networks through proxy gateways. The software bypasses firewall restrictions that prevent connections to restricted ports, and resolves DNS names while hiding each users' IP address. The latest release adds a help system, enables users to choose a Proxifier destination folder with the installation wizard, and works from non-standard locations outside the Applications folder. Proxifier is priced at $40, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
