USA IP Proxy for single application.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to set up a USA IP Proxy for a single application (in this case XBMC) and leaving the rest of the computer applications, including regular internet activity, on my local IP? If so, would this be done at the hardware level (I have a ZyXel P2812 VDSL Modem/Router) or can it be done in windows at the software level? Any tips and pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for being such a networking noob, but don't I have to do something outside of XBMC first? I know where to set up a proxy inside XBMC, but I have no idea what information to put in there.

For instance, if I want it to use my parent's IP back in the US isn't there something that needs to be done on their end so that I can point to them as the proxy? They live in Provo, UT. One of the latest announced locations for Google Fiber. smile.gif

Thank you Ulquiorra! Excellent resource. I have one other question, if you don't mind. I haven't thoroughly read through the entire Squid setup, but other diy proxy setups I have seen involve editing settings at the Router/Modem level, which affects all traffic coming in or out of the house. From what I've understood while reading through the squid post, there doesn't seem to be any alterations or configuring at the Router/Modem. Does this leave other computers on the same connection out of the proxy? (Which is what I'm going after). I don't want to set up a proxy service at my parents house if it's going to affect all their computers and route all their traffic through a proxy as well. I just want to be able to fake a US ip for my benefit with as little intrusion as possible. smile.gif

Thank you in advance for your help. smile.gif

You will need to set up port forwarding for your router, but it wonbt effect them as all it does it forward the connections of people that connect to it. If they odnt set up the proxy it dont use it (to be fair its fins if they do as all itll do is cache their internet reducing the bandwidth)


It is VERY important that you secure the proxy though

If you leave it open you will find very very very quickley that you have a zillion people using it.

Something like this is needed in the conf

acl nice_guys src your_ext_ip
http_access allow nice_guys
http_access deny all


(Or even better a VPN such as openVPN to first connect to the squid box, then youd have the acl as internal)
