As jehon already answered, you can disable the Internet connection for all MS-Office 2013 products (Word, Excel etc...) by using the following Regedit file: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Internet] "UseOnlineContent"=dword:00000000 But for me it was not enough and as some other commented, ...

Yes, if you are concerned about government level surveillance the problem you identified is a very real threat. Normally what someone will do in this situation is boot in to a "clean" OS that has no personal identifying information on it (Tails is a good example of this) and only use it for that anonymous communication. You could do it with Windows, it is ...

There is a famous saying that "The Internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it" You have mentioned some of the tools that have been used to do that rerouting, usually by hiding inside some other form of networking communication that is not censored. At least not yet. That's why its often referred to as tunneling. To cover all the ways ...

As far as I know, localhost and 127.0.0.1 are in the exception list (No proxy for... in Options, Advanced, Network, Settings) Try to remove them!

I had specifically this problem and couldn't find an easy to use solution. Basically the approach is still to set up SOCKS server in the VPN server. I've made this Docker image to make it actually usable https://hub.docker.com/r/kizzx2/openvpn-client-socks/ Start that and then set your browser to use SOCKS proxy at local.docker:1081 Most applications can ...

You need to put something in the "Router" box in the network settings! Even if you don't have a router (because you only go through a proxy) it needs something in there! Try it and let me know if you get the same results on El Capitan.

If looking just a little bit further (one click) from the article you refer to one will find the documentation of all parameters usable for http_port, which includes: key= Path to SSL private key file (PEM format) if not specified, the certificate file is assumed to be a combined certificate and key file.

Looks like bouncers could be considered layer 7 proxies. They manage an application layer connection downstream and provide an application connectivity endpoint upstream. So the proxy itself can stay connected even when the user is not. This could provide a number of services such as logging, notification, and presence even in the face of poor or irregular ...

If the browser and curl both use the proxy, your client will send the HTTP request "as is" and DNS resolution will be performed by the proxy. When you ping, nothing will be sent to the proxy so your client is responsible for performing DNS resolution. It sounds like you are unable to perform DNS resolution from your client. Perform a few basic nslookup ...

I found another possible solution posted by a James Faction: Under Options → Save: Tick "Don't show the Backstage when opening or saving files" and UNtick "Show additional places for saving, even if sign-in may be required".

Note the following: Proxy auto-configuration files do not support hard-coded usernames and passwords. There's good reasoning behind this too, since providing support for hard-coded credentials would open up significant security holes, as anybody would be able to easily view the required credentials to access the proxy. Rather configure the proxy as ...

Ok. I had the feeling that it needs some extra care, but just tested with local and dynamic port forwarding (on command-line, to the target host) and it works just fine for me. Forwarding to jumbox only might need special care, because this connection goes only through, or you might not have enough permissions. Verifying the logs with added LogLevel DEBUG3 ...

It depends how you configured your proxy in the first place. You could check if you previously specified the proxy settings in an apt config file, using this: grep 'https*::Proxy' /etc/apt/ -i -r Alternatively, if your proxy settings were placed in /etc/sudoers then you can't disable them before running sudo. You should either run sudo visudo to remove ...
