March 10, 2017

OSX

Use brew to install polipo via socks proxy:

$ ALL_PROXY=socks5://127.0.0.1:9500 brew install polipo

Create polipo.config file under Document:

socksParentProxy = "127.0.0.1:9500"
socksProxyType = socks5
proxyAddress = "::0"
proxyPort = 8123

Start polipo server:

$ polipo -c ~/Documents/polipo.config
Established listening socket on port 8123.

Verify it at http://localhost:8123.

Windows

Use privoxy tool. Download: http://www.privoxy.org/sf-download-mirror/Win32/

Install it, find the config file at \Privoxy\config.txt, append following to the bottom of it:

forward-socks5 / 127.0.0.1:9500 .

(Mind the dot at the end)

The default port is 8118, search from the config file to replace it.
