SocksCap64 support the 32-bit and 64-bit system of Windows XP/Vista/Win7/Win8/Win8.1/Win10 perfectly.
SocksCap64 is an application for shell agent software, developed by Taro Labs. It enables windows application to visit network through the socks proxy server without any revision of the applications, although some of them, like Web Browser, IM programs, FTP Clients and email programs or games don’t support the socks proxy.
It can assist you to hide your real IP address, speed up of the network through the socks proxy server. SocksCap64 currently support the Socks4/5/Http/Shadowsocks protocols, supports TCP and UDP.
SocksCap64 provides great convenience for Windows applications to visit the network through a SOCKS proxy. SocksCap64, compared with VPN, is more convenient, considering the fact that the entire traffic went through the VPN, once the VPN is connected. It means that the games you are playing and the IM software online need reconnection. But with SocksCap64, what the users need to do is to open an application without any mutual influence. Of course, some browser plugins can also have such a function like SocksCap64. But they have some obvious defects. They don’t support proxies with account password authentication; their configurations are relatively complex, compared with SocksCap64; and only several mainstreams browsers have such kinds of plugins.
The prototype of SocksCap64 was a proxy for private use from the author. One day, a friend of the author asked him/her whether he/she has some user-friendly proxies. Then the author sent his/her friend the private software. “The software is excellent! Why did you hide it? You should put it on the Internet for friends around the world of the same demands. You can even charge a fee.” said the friend to the author shockingly after using it. The author took the suggestion and spared some time to make this proxy tool for private use into user-friendly proxy software, named SocksCap64. Of course, the author didn’t charge any fees. This software is for free, and permanently free!

Support the TCP and UDP network protocols perfectly.
Be able to display the current connection information through the proxy and the program information in tunnels.
Be able to create the SC64 shortcuts, which enables the programs under proxy to be started up over the desk instead of starting up SC64 in advance.
Be able to add numerous proxies and change identifications by switching proxies in service.
Be able to join network rules and specify whether some websites or IP shall pass the proxy/ be connected directly/ be stopped.
Be able to stop the SocksCap64 in service temporarily and use the real identification to visit network. (After the temporary stop of the SocksCap64, websites will show your real IP address, if a new one is opened.)
Program selector: Select software, which has already been installed on your computer, to forward the traffic through the proxy server using SocksCap64.
Import automatically the Web Brower, which has already been installed into the system and start the Web Browsing quickly…

But I believe that interest will be missing and skills will be boring if you depend on it as a means to make a living. What do you think of it?

It’s really not easy to meet with you. There are many works to deal with so that the private tools can be transformed into software for public use, although SocksCap64 is software, evolved from the proxy I used previously. I have to complete, all by myself the tasks as follow: the UI/UE design, interface, menu function, website template development, website background specialized plug-ins development, the application compatibility of multiple operating systems, and the eventual testing of the operating systems. I have spent lots of time and energy over them and forgotten how many days and nights I sat for coding before the computer. And I begin to realize that life is tough for those professional programmers.
Ok, so donations. Many people love this software and to my surprise, many have actually asked to donate. In all good conscience, I can’t on the one hand write about how awesome and cost-effective web hosting is then, on the other hand, ask for donations to fund it. It’s cheap — I’ve got it covered.
Let me instead talk about the sacrifices required to make a service like this work. It can be enormously time consuming and that’s the real cost here. Plus there are a few services I pay for out of my own pocket to make the magic happen. If you want to kick in to help me cover those costs, that would be awesome. And no problem if you don’t want to either; just share the love and help others make use of the software.
Okay, Then if you think that SocksCap64 is good. Please give me financial support through Paypal or Alipay. And also write me letters to give me spiritual support, Thanks!
