Route Shield

Process Level Routing


Route Shield is able to "proxyify" any application that uses HTTP/HTTPS to communicate. Route Shield supports HTTP, HTTPS and SOCKS 4/5 proxies. A system-wide proxy can be set or individual applications can be tuned to use a specific provider. You can also even map individual domain names to a specific proxy provider if desired.

The image below shows the system-wide proxy settings that can be configured. If you do not want Route Shield to provide a proxying capability then simply disable it. However, when enabled you have four options to choose from on how Route Shield should handle proxy connections.

  • Random: Every connection will be assigned a random proxy from the configured list.
  • Round Robin: The next proxy in the list is picked in a repeating, circular fashion.
  • Schedule: Set specific proxies will be applied during the configured days and times.
  • Specific: Use a specific proxy for all applications that do not have a specific configuration set.

As mentioned, you can also configure proxies to domains and IP addresses. To configure, first check the proxy mapping checkbox then add your mappings. When a match occurs, that connection will be routed to the configured proxy.
