You can't do this. Your isp knows that youtube's ip address is a certain value and that you are trying to request content from it. You can't doublespeak and say I want information from youtube and another page at the same time, and there is no way to route information through youtube. Sorry.

There are several ranges of 'private' ip addresses, as defined in RFC1918. These are: 10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255 (10/8 prefix) 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 (172.16/12 prefix) 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 (192.168/16 prefix) That an IP address starts with 192 doesn't necessarily mean it's a private IP address. For example the ISP ...

I don't know about Firefox, but on Chrome I use the extension Proxy SwitchySharp (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/proxy-switchysharp/dpplabbmogkhghncfbfdeeokoefdjegm, take a look on the third screen on that site), where I can create rules.

You can use port forwarding for this. Lets say the machine you can connect to is on 88.88.88.88 and that is the public address of your server on 10.8.8.8. The machine you want to get to is on 10.8.8.9 You connect to the first machine with ssh, and set up a port forward to the next. I'll show the command line way so that you can see how it works: ssh ...

ping does not use a proxy. ping is sending ICMP packets directly to the target. A (web/http) proxy in contrast is used for TCP connections. Which programs use a proxy strongly depends on the developers. IE uses the IE proxy settings.

Why not find out yourself what kind of information you might be leaking. Since DNS lookups is the only proxy privacy setting you've not disabled, you can use Process Monitor to look for UDP Send operations initiated by uTorrent. With uTorrent running and configured to use the SOCKS proxy, launch Process Monitor and set the filter to include events from ...
