Connect GW2 through VPN Proxy

Hi,
is it possible to connect GW2 using a vpn proxy on a remote server ?
If it's so, how this could be made ? I'm trying changing commands line switch with any success.

Thx
Regards

    As fas as I know, Guild Wars uses the systems proxy to connect, thus the one you configure in the internet options. You probably need to set up your proxy there.

    Was I able to help you or give you a hint? Click on Helpful and/or Thumbs up, I would appreciate it alot!
    When you encounter a bug ingame, at first you should file a ticket via the ingame command /bug, as only this way the devs will know exactly where you were, when the bug happened.

    Hi Nokomis,
    thx for reply!
    I thought the same as well and tried to setup proxy in the internet options -> lan settings but it seems gw2 ignore that settings :

    where xx.xx.xx.xx is the remote vpn proxy server (privoxy) that is running on port 8118

    Are there some other settings to be done ?

    Thx

    Hmmm what happens, when you let Guild Wars run on port 8118? Done via -clientport 8118

    A standard proxy is something a program has to support in order to use. It's not something you can simply turn on like a VPN. It is possible to force it by using software like FreeCap, but it's not ideal. A VPN on the other hand act likes a network connection, so everything will naturally go through it. See OpenVPN for that.
