Build your own Web Proxy in 10 Easy Steps

Post by kurdt on Thu Dec 17, 2009 11:36 am

Software Requirements:
OpenSSH
Putty
Privoxy
PortableFirefox


Steps involved in Installation & Configuration:
1. Install OpenSSH on your PC

2. Install Privoxy on your PC/Server

3. Now install Putty/PortaPutty and PortableFirefox on your thumbdrive.

4. Now as you have already installed OpenSSH just run it once and make sure SSHD service is running as system account and server is configured to respond on port/socket 443, also make sure you
are able to SSH into your server from another machine on the same network.

5. Configure Privoxy to run as a service and make sure port number is set to communicate on default port 8112.

6. Now double click Putty to open its basic configuration window and specify the following:
* Hostaname(or IP address) : ip_address_of_server
* Port : 443
* Protocol : SSH

7. Now Go to SSH>Tunnels, and make the following entry within specified field:
* Source Port : 8118
* Destination : 127.0.0.1:8118
* Click on radio button to select Local, Auto

8. Now Go back to the Session section where you
specified Hostname(IPAddress), and Save this whole session with a new name.

9. Now finally Open Firefox and Go to
Tools>Option>General tab>Connection Settings and select Manual Proxy
Configuration:
* HTTP Proxy : 127.0.0.1
* Port : 8118
* SOCKS v5

10. Save this configuration and you are done.

Now all your web traffic is set to walk through the Proxy
Server’s path which is configured in Putty, here in Putty it is
configured to reroute all your web traffic to the server you are
connecting through port 8118.

Here Thumdrive is used for your mobility and it is optional. For those
who want to configure it on there system they can repeat the same with
there favorite browser either Opera or IExplorer
