Is SocksCap same as tunneling application?

Hi all,

I'm not quite sure if SocksCap is same as tunneling application such as HTTP Proxy or something like that or is it to be used in conjunction with the tunneling software. Could someone clarify, thanks!

SOCKS can forward general traffic, so it's more than a simple tunnel (it can dynamically add stuff to be forwarded, which most tunnels won't do).

An HTTP proxy is not a tunneling application, though you could use a tunneling application to run a HTTP tunnel over it. (The proxy itself does not build tunnels in the conventional sense of the word, after all.)

I don't know what SocksCap is, sorry!

It is a small software package that allows non socks capable software to use socks proxies.
