    Good day,
    is it possible to achieve the following using Fiddler: intercept a request via http proxy, and forward the request to the same address, just changing proxy type from http to socks5? This way I want to add socks5 support to some software, which only supports http(s) proxies. Thanks.

    Fiddler does not support SOCKS5, but does support SOCKS4a, which has the key feature (remote DNS). To forward inbound traffic to an upstream SOCKSv4a proxy, see https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/httpfiddler/6m2xEe0fRmw/_NWAlNzn5eEJ
