Some programs, which requires network, do not support proxy mechanism
such as SOCKS5. There is a tool called proxychains
(http://proxychains.sf.net) which provides us to redirect all of the
network traffic to a defined server can be SOCKS4, 5, or others. For
instance, I can use 

proxychains wget http://www.google.com

to download the homepage of google if I am behind the proxy. This is
quiet useful, it even works with java too. But I dont have any luck to
use it with wine, anyone else wants to give it a try ? or...find a
workaround ?
