Proxies for Sandbox

Post by Jim28 »

Hello

Is it possible to make it possible to assign a proxy server for each of the used "sandboxes" :?:

What do you mean by that? You want one proxy server when you execute browser in one sandbox, and another when using another sandbox? This is similar with situation when you have a notebook and move between several places, at each one you have to use a different proxy.

Proxy servers have nothing to do with SBIE. But there are e.g. addons for browsers. I remember using Proxy Selector for Firefox several years ago that was doing exactly this. Proxy Selector probably no longer exists, but surely there are other similar addons.

I need to run two copies of one application so that they have different IP addresses.

SBIE is an application sandbox, IP is set in the OS. I'm almost sure you can't change IP in the sandbox.

What you can do, however, is to run multiple instances of a http proxy and direct your application traffic through them. Search for "standalone http proxy" - examples are "http-proxy - npm" or "TinyProxy".
