I have Ubuntu (hardy) with tor and privoxy installed, configured and working correctly with the Vidalia gui in gnome.
I would like all requests going to/from the internet from any program on my computer to go through the local proxy server (privoxy - port 8118) instead of directly through my ISP.
I don't want it limited to programs only with proxy support.
I would like to have all requests to the internet to be routed through privoxy/tor.

Do I need this accomplished using iptables?

If so, how?

What you need is a socks proxy with a socksify application. that way most of the applications will use your proxy.

see these two articles that can help:
