Ban non-VPN or all networking

Is there a way to force some applications to only use a VPN interface for networking, or ban all networking from them completely? Could this be done with jails? I want to use VPN "anonymously" so that my real IP, DNS requests and other such stuff are not leaked.

Firefox Yes, but another aplication You must change in text file manually - i think. Also Firewall can block any non-VPN connection and unlock traffic for VPN IP, but at thi$ moment i have no idea how to redirect all traffic via VPN. :p

Just block all traffic in/out of your machine using a firewall like PF ( Then only allow traffic through the VPN.

Sample for /etc/pf.conf

loopback_device = "lo0"
network_devices = "{ em0 wlan0 }"
tcp_pass = "{ 80 443 }"

# table containing all IP addresses assigned to the firewall
table <firewall> const { self }

# do not filter on the loopback device
set skip on lo0

scrub in all
antispoof for $network_devices

block all

# Whitelist VPN traffic out of machine below.

Note that you have to start and enable PF to for outbound/inbound traffic to be blocked.
