    182182It also depends, what kind of proxy you want to use.

     184See also [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBOX/OptionalConfigurations#TransparentProxying TorBOX/OptionalConfigurations#TransparentProxying] (Describes Transparent Proxying inside Tor-Workstation to an extra proxy, i.e. Tor-Workstation -> Tor -> Proxy.)
     185
     186There are two options available. 1. Transparent Proxying or 2. The Proxy Settings Method.
     187
     188=== Transparent Proxying ===
     189Transparent Proxying (like TorBOX with Tor's TransPort) is, due to technical limitations, not fully supported by proxies. Proxies do not offer a DnsPort and also do not act as a DNS server. While it's possible to relay TCP and UDP traffic through the proxy on the IP level (using iptables), you would still always require known (you know the IP) DNS server. (i.e. public DNS server such as OpenDNS, Google, httpsdnsd) DNS resolution would look like: Proxy-Workstation -> Proxy-Gateway -> Proxy -> DNS server. It's technically not possible to let the proxy transparently (!) do the DNS resolution (no tools available) - at least not that we know after extended research know of.
     190
     191Due to the DNS issue, you can't completely hide behind the proxy (using it transparently). You always would have to reveal, that you are using a public (or private) extra DNS resolver. Of course, you would also not only have to trust the proxy, but also the extra DNS server, which can see all your DNS queries.
     192
     193=== Proxy Settings Method ===
     194Design: The Proxy-Workstation is on an isolated internal LAN (similar to TorBOX's Tor-Workstation design) and can't connect to the internet directly. (Iptables rules on the Proxy-Gateway forbid that.) All applications installed inside the Proxy-Workstation have to use the correct [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorifyHOWTO#classicalcommonway:usetheapplicationsproxysettings proxy settings] or a [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorifyHOWTO#notsocommon:useawrapper:forcetheapplicationtouseaproxytorsocksusewithtor wrapper].
     195
    184196=== CGI ===
    185197[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CGIProxy CGIProxies] (proxy web interface) are not supported as we don't know any trans2cgi redirectors.
