Hi I want to use paltalk, which is a kind of chat software, but the ports that this applications uses are closed in my country. What I need to do is to use a proxy server. Unfortunately the software itself does not provide a proxy setting. I though it would be possible to run paltalk on an O.S. installed on a virtual machine (say virtualbox) and configure the network setting of virtual machine to direct all its traffic through a proxy on host Operating system, but I could not find a way to do so neither. can anyone please help me?

You can do that, however that won't help you from your description.

What you want to do is sign up with a commercial "hotspot vpn" style service to get around those sort of restrictions. That sort of service is usually much cheaper then buying a VM somewhere just to use as a proxy.

VPN is also not available in my country as well :( – Navid Apr 8 '10 at 13:13
