Setting up a Proxy

241 3
ok, so i just got a little server in dallas, i want to use it as a proxy for myself an possibly one or to others, ie spent the last hour or so bashing my head against a wall with squid, some quick information is ubuntu 10.04, shh only so no gui's or anything, i cant use em, i consider myself at a moderate level with this sort of thing, however networking is one of my major weak points, i would love for some input and help, what should i install, how do i configure it where do i put what, i will also point out i have access to ip tables and whatnot if that helps, i will also note i will be running a tf2 server beside this, however i have multiple dedicated IP's for my system

once i/we get this set up how do i go about using it? my main thing for this is security and us spoof browsing

You can use squid over SSH for an encrypted browsing experience (from your house to VPS). This is also handy in hotels/etc as you will have an encrypted stream out of their network/unsecured-wifi.

1) Edit squid.conf to allow localhost to access all resources in the ACL
2) Port forward over SSH

As such:

Then, once you connect over SSH and authenticate, point your browser at proxy localhost with port 3128, you will be using the squid proxy over SSH.
