Re: Socks/TOR setup question

Sorry to come back again with this question, but I would appreciate an
help to fix this problem..

My question below; I add that I am using SockCap to socksify some
programs. SocksCap is setup with (Socks4 OR Socks5, it
doesn't change anything), and the log messages come when I use a
socksified program...

If there is a way to use the socks server of TOR without SocksCap for
software that haven't any "proxy option", I don't know them...

Thank you again.
