Canada Proxy

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
i am looking for a Canadian proxy server that supports a static ip. so that everytime i use that proxy to surf the net, the same IP is used.


something similar to this http://www.freeproxy.ca/ , it doesn't have to be free i am willing to pay.

or an application similar to Hotspot shield that supports a static ip(canada).

i don't know too much about proxys. if i come off as stupid, dont flame me just point it out.

I'm not sure how much you know about setting up proxy servers/vps but you could pretty cheaply (between $6 and $10 a month) set up a VPS with a Canadian network, and then set up your own socks server and make your connections through the ip that you personally pay to use. One benefit to that would be that you could also do stuff like host your own web/dns servers on your vps should you so choose.

I'm not exactly sure how much bandwidth you're planning on pushing through, but if you want something really cheap you could go with something like this: http://tinyvps.ca/
http://www.superbytes.net/

I know the specs on the boxes are really crappy, but should be more than enough for a SOCKS server and a barebones linux setup. (This is actually the first time I've looked at Canadian servers, they are very cheap here in the States (I use this one for 4 vps servers -> http://virpus.com/budget-vps/) and have a couple in Romania that don't cost much more.

Depending on how much bandwidth you are planning to push that should get the job done. If you aren't comfortable with Linux there are some Windows VPS options out there. Generally speaking though, you'll need a little bit better boxes to do the same thing, and I have no idea about the availibility of free SOCKS servers for windows, but I'm sure there must be free options out there that can't be too difficult to configure.

Go to www.your-freedom.net. Download Your-freedom client.

Create yourself a account.
Install it search for the servers then connect. Go back to your-freedom site log in and choose test drive. Test the packages and their speeds out to see if its good enough for you.

You can select the same server everytime if your looking to use 1 ip. But why do you want to use the same ip if I may ask?

I'd second the VPS idea.

You can also forward your squid/proxy connections over SSH, so you would have an encrypted data link between your location and your server. This is useful in public points where you have no idea who would be capturing what kind of data.

If you do decide to take the VPS route I found a service that is only a couple dollars more per month $8 USD for considerably more bandwidth (double tinyvps and 66% more than the 2nd) and better boxes:
http://www.ubhosting.net/portal/cart.php?a=add&pid=129

I'm still not quite sure why Canadian vps have so much lower quality machines for the same cost as in the US, but either way, this should work as a proxy for you should you decide to go that route. However, if you won't pass 50GB or 60GB bandwidth might as well use the lower end ones.

Like beers noted, one of the real benefits to having your own vps is that you have a much higher security. On my vps I encryt the drives (not all vps allow this, you'll have to contact them beforehand) and always open encrypted ssh tunnels to my box when I use them for proxy. If you are able to encrypt your drives, even though the vps backs up the nodes, unless they break your crypt they won't be able to access your information (nor will anyone else) if they retreive your data from their backups.

Additionally, with your own vps you can always rely on a speed and uptime that won't be present with other proxy services. Depending on the distance between yourself and the data center where your vps is hosted, I'd guess in some siutions you'd hardly even notice that you were on a proxy at all.

Your-freedom is a encrypted network tunnel. So all your data is safe. You can even do server port forwards with them

You have no idea if they're actually capturing your data at the other end.

That and the fact you have to install their special client on your PC, which could easily open you up to anything they had in mind.

Also, their basic plan for $5.83 a month gives you only 256kbit of bandwidth. You can get a $3-4 VPS that will saturate 20+ mbps.
