Is it possible? I have an http proxy which requires authentication, while browsers go fine Shockwave apps don't respond, I guess because they open a new connection.

if the shockwave app in general opens the http connection through the proxy and just the authentication fails, you may want to try cntlm.

If the app is not using proxy, you may whish to use a transparent proxy and forward all outoing traffic to port 80 to the port of the proxy.

Problem is that shockwave in linux is only available with wine, and I don't want that...for this reason I'm using windows 7, isn't there an equivalent solution to cntlm? – user1610075 Oct 8 '12 at 7:51
cntlm is running with windows:… – user4711 Oct 8 '12 at 9:04
it doesn't appear to work...browser's connection is redirected but shockwave is not! From sniffing it appears that no connection is estabilished at all – user1610075 Oct 10 '12 at 14:19
that's somewhat strange that the adobe plugins don't seem to honour the proxy settings, this is why outgoing traffic must be redirected on tcp level. Did you try reroute outgoing TCP/80 to the ctnlm listening port? – user4711 Oct 10 '12 at 14:28
yes I result :( – user1610075 Oct 25 '12 at 10:03
