Global proxy settings for Windows
I am based in the uk currently, but have a deep craving for american-only websites. So naturally i have a (paid) proxy server - and while i'd like to know of other paid servers out there, that isn't this question.
This question is - when i visit amazon.com, it knows i am not in the us, but in the uk. Same browser (firefox), usig the proxy server. So:
- How is amazin doing this?
And the main question(WINDOWS question)
- I currently use a trial version of the "proxifier" to get around this. Is there another way of forcing all connections to use some given proxy? Is it a windows setting? I have two firewalls (eset and windows firewall), can either of them do this? Is there another program that can do this instead?
Proxifier seems to do a whole passle of things, and i really only need to make all connections use a given proxy!
