Multiplayer Games Through Proxies

6 posts in this topic

Is there a way to join a multiplayer server through a proxy with a PC game that doesn't have proxy settings?

That all depends on the game. Sometimes, games work on a single TCP port that can be wrapped in an HTTP or SOCKS proxy either transparently through the network, or with a "proxifier" that will intercept any calls to make TCP connections and make them through a proxy. More often, games rely on UDP and this makes it a lot harder to use through a proxy. Also, a proxy will add significant latency issues, making any games like first person shooters a lot less enjoyable.

So you'll need more information about your game first.

Sockscap/Freecap - adds socks/proxy support to any application.

Keep in mind a lot of games do not just identify a network identifier, some use registered game keys to block you so not even a proxy will defeat that.

Yeah, a friend of mine got his steam account VAC banned while creating a HL2DM mod and lost about $300 worth of games
