I've successfully enabled dynamic port forwarding in my web browser. Now I'd like to go a few steps further if that's at all possible.
1) There is software that monitors network traffic on a computer: Firewalls (think Zone Alarm, Total Defense Security etc). So why can't a software service run on my computer and monitor specific ports without having to enable SOCKS in individual apps? I travel with my laptop a few times a year and it'd be easy to forget to enable or disable SOCKS in one or more app.
2) How would I go about figuring out what ports an app uses so that I can make sure to set up the required port forwarding. For example, I use Quicken 2013 and it syncs' to the Quicken cloud service but I have no idea what port(s) it uses. I also don't seen anything way in it to use SOCKS.
3) When my laptop detects that I'm connecting to a new network, it asks me if it's a Home, Work or Public network. What I'd LOVE to do is make it so that if I'm connected to anything not designated as HOME, then automatically enable the DynPort Forwarding.
