Netshade, not free but why do you need software for proxy's, you can do that in Network Preferences.

I think NetShade don't do this???

Some apps contact directly to net without using proxy servers set in Network Preferences and there is apps which can fix this, but i try to find easiest app. Thanks

AFAIK all connections go through a proxy server when you are connected in 1 way.
So, if your mac is connected through ethernet and that is the only active connection and you have proxy settings in Network Preferences or software which connects to a proxy all your data goes through the proxy and this is valid for all software running on your Mac.
