---- FAQ ----

Q: Wth... I can't get to the settings tab!
A: Just swipe from right to left. Same goes for info tab.

Q: It is not working for XXXX app. Will give you bad rating until you fix it.
A: It is not always Drony problem that some app is not working.
It can be blocked by upper proxy:
-some special ports not allowed (mostly 80 and 443 are allowed)
-udp protocol used
-ipv6 protocol used

Q: I have concerns that traffics goes through your VPN servers. Is this the case?
A: There is no VPN servers. VPN mode is just used to intercept all traffic and direct to Drony app.
Because some apps not respect android OS proxy settings. You can check this if Drony then redirect traffic to other proxy. Squid for example. In squid logs will be just requests to servers that android apps needs.

Q: It is not working for app that don't respect andoid OS proxy settings on L preview?
A: https://code.google.com/p/android-developer-preview/issues/detail?id=346 . Star the issue to be more quickly resolved.

Q: TeamViewer is not working. Any ideas why?
A: TeamViewer--Options--Advanced--Enable UDP = OFF. Also when chain proxy is involved port 5938 is mapped to 443. It works, but could change in the future.

Q: Can I use AdBlockPlus with Drony?
A: Yes. Android OS proxy should point to AdBlockPlus proxy port. Drony should start with VPN mode.

Q: Looks to me that not all traffic goes to Tor, ssh tunnel when feature is active.
A: Redirection works currently only when vpn intercept traffic.
So to have all traffic redirected there should be no android wifi os proxy
set to point to Drony (localhost 8020).

If you need more options, features check SandroProxy. It's more a developer tool for intercepting traffic.
