Mac Proxy For App

A local proxy app that forwards requests to a parent proxy with automatic autorization. Preproxy is basically an improved, sandboxed, Mac App Store-enabled version of Authoxy. I made it because Authoxy has been abandoned for quite some time and has started having problems since macOS Sierra came out.

Application Proxy forwards the request, which is picked up by the Application Proxy connector. The connector performs any additional authentication required on behalf of the user ( Optional depending on authentication method ), requests the internal endpoint of the application server and sends the request to the on-premises application.

Most open source apps are incapable of reading proxy password saved in System Preferences.Hardcoding the password in export http_proxy=.. is no good either.Preproxy accepts proxy requests on localhost and forwards them to the given remote proxy, automatically taking care of proxy authorization using the credentials stored in Keychain.

NTLM and Kerberos authentication methods are supported. Even those apps that do read proxy credentials from macOS keychain often don’t care to support advanced methods like Kerberos; with Preproxy it is now possible to have any app in the system to authorize at the proxy uniformly and without saving password at all. Kerberos is main authorization method in Windows Active Directory domains, so most corporate network proxies should already support it.

Preproxy also supports Proxy Auto-Configuration scripts that are commonly used in Windows networks. This allows command line apps to automatically use the latest configuration provided by network administrators.

  • Create a Support Ticket to report a bug, suggest a feature or ask a question (ignore account creation email if you don’t want to monitor ticket status).

  • Check Knowledge Base for tips on using the app.

  • Preproxy Privacy Policy as required by Mac App Store.

New changes:

  • Fixed sporadic “Host not found” DNS failures
  • Listen on IPv6 port too if available
  • Recent requests UI improved slightly

Hello

Macos Proxy Tool


Most recent microsoft office for mac.

Is there a way to make AppStore work via a proxy server?

In my case all MACs behind Squid Proxy server and no matter what exclusions I make on proxy, AppStore won't purchase apps. All works well until I click INSTALL.

Looking at proxy log files I can see AppStore getting page components (ie. jpg images) from non-Apple site(s), but it looks like AppStore's purchase process ignores proxy settings and trying DIRECT connection.


If AppStore ignores proxy setting, what would be the IP address(es) for appstore servers to add firewall exclusions.


Thank you very much for you help.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
