Is there a way to proxify some application with certain rules and then change the rules without restarting an application (like Proxifier on Windows). I tried tsocks but it seems it requires a restart every time I change my config. Any suggestions?

@guntbert: Redirect its network traffic through a transparent proxy. –  Mechanical snail Jan 5 '13 at 22:33
