I have a few different applications on my Mac that ideally I would like to run with different network settings.

One app for work I need to run over my work VPN, but at the same time, I have another app I need to run over a proxy for testing. Currently, I can only work with one app at a time with the required network setup. Stop working with it, then setup my other network config.

Is there an app, or a way to specify via settings that an application should use a particular networking setup?

There are two premium (paid) solutions that do this well.
