Setting up a public proxy server

Q: Setting up a public proxy server

I have Squid installed on a Linux box running OpenSuSE 10.3. Does anyone know of a guide for configuring it for public access. So far it works fine from inside my internal network.

Does anyone know of any other proxy server programs for linux? Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Setting up a public proxy server

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Setting up a public proxy server

Hum.. Why are you doing this? You do realise that you will not be able to keep this proxy "secret" (even if you use non-default ports)? There are literally thousands of machines out there doing port scans and looking for open proxies just like yours. Once found, your machine becomes a conduit for everything that needs to be hidden from law enforcement officials. (And you will be the one questioned about all that child porn, hacking attempts and spam.) You should be prepared to keep throrough logs of everything and have a fast internet connection.

Anyway, first you should find out whether it is your firewall or Squid itself that is blocking access from the internet.

For all the Squid documentation you would ever want, try the totally unthinkable www.squid.org

I was wondering if someone could help me find a good safe trusted public proxy server in the United States. You see I live in Canada and want to watch videos on Hulu and tv network sites but they are only available in the U.S.

If you could also help me with hooking up to it. I am using a D-link wired router, high speed internet, my OS is XP media center, firefox browser.
I do know that I have to change a setting in firefox but not sure what to change too.

This is what I know so far or at least I think I know; Firefox - Tools - Options - Advanced - Network - Connection(setting) - but then I don't know what one to pick

- Auto-detect proxy settings of this Network

- Manual proxy configuration

- Automatic proxy configuration URL

I hope I gave enough information and thanx for all and any help

My Win8 Start Page apps stopped working - could not access internet. Then I noticed Dropbox couldn't get a "secure connection". But Firefox browser and my email client had no problem with the internet. After hunting around a bit, I discovered that Proxy Server was checked in the LAN Settings of Internet Options-Connections tab. I turned it off and all was well, but it came back on the next boot. I can't find anything suspicious in my autostarted programs and the built-in MS security software isn't complaining about anything.

Anybody have any ideas? I'm fresh out of things to try. Meanwhile I keep resetting the Proxy check box whenever I have to re-boot.

A:Something is setting proxy server

If you haven't tried using System Restore yet, it's pretty handy for this sort of trouble.

From the Windows 8 Start Screen, type Recovery, then click Settings, then click Recovery, and then select Open System Restore. Choose a restore point from before your proxy settings started reinventing themselves.

Best of luck

Hello, I use a web accelerator called ExpressLink. When I connect to the Internet the proxy server setting is getting turned on automatically even though
it is not necessary when using the accelerator. If I disable the proxy server setting, it usually gets turned on again. I do not have any ISP software
installed. I have tried setting my connection to "Never dial a connection." but as soon as the accelerator starts the proxy server setting turns on. How do I keep this from happening? I am using Windows XP Home.

A:Disabling the Proxy Server Setting

The accelerator IS the proxy. The proxy settings probably look like "localhost:8080" or something like that, right? If that's the case, you would need to disable the accelerator, which is probably not something you want to do anyway, so you will need to leave the proxy settings enabled.

Hi all

We have just installed Websense Software for Internet Filtering. We now want to point all our 250+ PCs to the Proxy Server. Rather than doing this individually on each PC, I understand this can be done via Group Policy (GP). I have identified that in the UserConfig, under Windows Settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\connection you can select Proxy Settings. Here I enable Proxy, set the Proxy IP and to use the same proxy for all addresses.
On saving and assigning the GPO to the workstation, it fails to apply the settings. However, if you manually set the options under the Tools\Connections Tab within IE6 it works fine.

We are running Server 2003 with XP Workstaions (Sp2) with IE6. All fully patched.

Anyone got any ideas!!!!!


A:Proxy Server setting via Group Policy

You can make that change in your default domain policy
under the user configuration.
It should work withou applying it to workstations.
Since you are making the change apply to users....no workstations
are needed to be specified.

Hey guys,

I've been digging through forums and sites for the past couple months now trying to find a way to help me turn my home PC into a proxy server so I may use Pandora Radio on my iPhone over public WIFI at work. Recently our corporate offices upgraded their network and in turn added a firewall which blocks many common external sites, one of which included Pandora.

I have found a temporary workaround by way of using Hotspot Shield's free VPN services, but I would like to create my own proxy server at home instead so I can avoid the constant timeouts/disconnects involved with the free service.

So far I've set up my PC to use a static IP on the network, and forwarded port 1723 to that address. I've also enabled incoming connections under adapter settings, but it just seems like I'm missing something big here. I am unable to make a connection to my home PC from my iPhone over WAN, and even if I was able to I'm not sure how to enable internet connection sharing over that connection.

Is what I would like to do at all possible or feasible? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have strange issue with Windows 8.1 x64 Pro with Media Center. Since it was upgraded from 8, there have been issues with Software Store. Despite internet connection working fine with Firefox and other applications, Store would not connect to the internet. After long investigation I found out that Proxy server setting in Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings must be disabled in order to get Store working again. For some reason proxy server only stays disabled for the current session, which means when the windows is rebooted it comes back enabled again. My question is how to make it stay permanently disabled, as I don't use any proxy. Thanks.

I appear to be the victim of some piece of malware or virus that has added a proxy server setting that I am unable to get rid of. The main symptoms are that I am unable to change my proxy server settings in Windows 10. It appears to use this setting http=;. The result of this is that I am unable to do searches in the omnibar of Google Chrome (just takes me to a blank page) and I can't visit certain webpages, also if I am able to do a Google search the "Search Tools" button is missing.
I looked around on the internet and have tried a few fixes, I've deleted or changed the registry entries mentioned in Philip Turner's reply here: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/446898-can-t-disable-proxy-in-ie10?page=1
I also changed the entry mentioned here: https://fixedit.itxpress.biz/2014/10/08/unable-to-disable-windows-proxy-setting/
Making these changes allowed me to change the proxy server settings and once I change "Automatically detect settings" to on and "Use a a proxy server" to off then the issue is fixed and everything behaves normally. 
The problem is, once I restart my computer the settings revert back and are again unable to be changed unless I delete/change all the above registry entries again. I'm pretty sure that whatever did this is still on my computer somewhere and I need some help finding and eliminating it. Either that, or there is still some hidden registry entry that I am unable to find.

I have installed a driver from Wells Fargo for a check scanner. This driver installs a service that connects the scanner to a Wells Fargo's server.  For some reason it bypasses the proxy settings in IE.  Is there a way to either force this
particular service through the proxy or to globally set all network traffic to be sent through the proxy.  Keep in mind that the proxy server is not located on our local network but is remote so I can't set the Default gateway to the proxy. And I

I need some help providing public internet access. I have a client that has a small breakfast cafe and his customers want to have wireless internet access for business meetings etc. We are bringing in a cable connection for this as well as connectivity for the internal network of about 8 PC's and a SBS2003 server. My biggest question is how to keep the internal network seperate from the public while sharing the same internet connection?? Currently the SBS 2003 server provides DHCP for the internal network, I don't want the 'public' network to even be able to see the internal network and server, so I would need a router that can provide DHCP right?? Does anyone make a router that would split the Internet connection to 2 networks? One for the internal network and one for the public??

Hi everyone. Been using Windows 7 for a while now. Trying to understand the advanced sharing a little more. Here is what I want to accomplish.

I have 2 computers both with Win7 RTM. One laptop and one desktop.
I want both of the computers to each have shared folders each with....

1 Shared folder that requires a login with the same username/password on the host computer
1 Public folder that doesn't need login and can be accessed by anyone in my workgroup.

As of right now I have almost got what I wanted, except for the logon thing.

By using advanced sharing I have got a public folder that can be seen by everyone as well as a folder that is only accessible by me. Since both my computers have the same login/pw, I can only access this private folder on either PC when I am logged on.

If I use my roomates computer for example, which uses a different Username/pw, I am not prompted to enter my credentials. I am just unable to access the folder.

Is there a way to add the option to allow credential login on these private folders so I an access them from any computer granted that I use my Username and PW to login.

Here are some screenshots of how my private and public folders are set up as well as my Win 7 networking settings.

To sum it up. I want to be able to access private shared folders from computers other than my own where I can login to them with my username/pw.

Thanks in advance!

Go to My Computer and map a network drive. Enter the name of the share like \\james-laptop\james welch and click the place where it lets you specify alternate credentials. Use the username and password of your computer.

Let us know whether or not it worked.

There are other ways to solve that problem but this is the easiest one to try off the top of my head.

OK, I'm attempting to set up an access point for public internet access, but don't want the users to see the office computers.

AP: D-link DWL-2200AP (w/ most current firmware)
Office Router: Netgear FVS318v3
No server set up yet, just the router going to a few PCs

Netgear router ( is the dhcp server - 192.168.1.x [office computers are on this].
The AP DHCP ( to issue 192.168.100.x [public users].

I'm not 100% sure about the default gateway & DNS information I need to put in the AP. I've tried several settings, but none have gotten internet access to work.

Last settings I tried on the Dynamic Pool settings on the AP:
IP assigned from:
range of pool: 15

Right now, the AP will issue out the correct IP address of 192.168.100.x, but I cannot connect to the internet. nslookup says it can't find server. - which makes sense because it is a different IP set, right?

From a laptop, I can ping but not even though the address on the laptop got assigned If that's the case, then shouldn't the DNS work?
I have tried different address for the gateway and dns, but nothing has worked.

Am I just wasting my time here? I'm learning about this stuff as I go along, this is the first time I've tried anything with a different IP range together.

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.

Initially, I was unable to connect my desktop computer to any router (Ethernet wired), but with some assistance from Terry on this site, he was able to solve that problem by having me change the speed and duplex on the network adapter via the Device Manager. After setting the speed at 10mbps full duplex (or half duplex), my computer connected to the router and everything worked great until two days later when I turned off and restarted my computer.

Now, every time I turn the computer off and back on, it will not connect to the router.

i am just messing about experimenting on a few things at home and wondered if someone could give me some pointers on the folowing:
I have myself a win2k server that is connected to the internet using a cable modem connected using a ethernet net card.
I also have a 98 machine networked to the server using another ethernet net card in a workgroup
I want to use the server as a proxy server so i can access the internet from the 98 machine
i have tried a few diffrent things to get this working but usually end up losing all communication with the 98 pc
from what i can gather it involves setting up tings with DNS, and sharing the connection to the internet, but i am not getting to far at the mo.
can anyone point me in the right direction or better tell me how to do it?

Mod Edit:  Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/414501/how-to-hide-ip-address-for-beginners/ - Hamluis.
 What does it do when you set up your own proxy using google apps and python engine? I did that not long ago just to see if i could but dont know how a circular route would be any better (circular route- a google account traceable to my ip, setting up a proxy that uses said google account.) Whats the deal with this way of doing it?  Its worked to get passed certain blocked sites but then its also barred me from other sites that don't allow proxy logons.

I upgraded my computer to windows 10 and now, the proxy settings keeps getting reset to and I loose internet connection until I go to internet explorer and remove that settings - it is really annoying - how do I completely remove it once and 4all.
Thanks for the responses and help in advance.

A:Proxy Setting is the local host (Ethernet address) 
Search for Internet Options>>Connections>>Lan Settings>>Uncheck all check boxes expect Use Automatic Settings and click apply and ok, that should fix it.

Hi! So on my 2 month old laptop which ive never had any problems with, the other day i started it up to find when my sidebar started to load, i got a message saying

"Settings.ini is being used by another process. Close the other program and then click Retry, or click Cancel to exit Sidebar."

I've searched through various forums which delegated to edit the account controls or run as admin, neither of which have worked for me.

In addition to this, nearly every application i open tells me the file is corrupted, even programs i may have installed literally 2 seconds ago...i downloaded a registry cleaning software and it told me it was corrupted before i even opened it. It also say that C:\Users\Public\Desktop folder is corrupted which has caused some funky things on my desktop, like loss of icons, and various programs that i didnt think were related to not work properly.

Please, any help would be greatly appreciated, ive spent hours and hours trying to find a solution buried in the web out there, and have had no luck at all...

       I am trying to set up a FTP server on a spare Windows 8.1 computer in the house to make a external hard drive accessible over the internet remotely. I have followed this tutorial exactly: http://www.avoiderrors.net/how-to-setup-an-ftp-server-in-windows-8/
I can access the server in my Chrome browser here with the local IP address of the computer (ftp://192.168...) and see the files but as soon as I try the public address of the router it will not connect (Chrome says ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED ).
I have tried everything, the firewall of the host computer is off, and the port is forwarded as 21. I also tried this with FileZilla. I set up the FileZilla server on the host machine and setup the client on the other computer. I was able to connect to the
server with the local IP of the computer and access the files, but when trying it with the router's IP again it did the same thing. I have tried everything I can think of...

Any help?

Hey all,
With my webserver and gaming servers, I need to be able to connect to my global IP like my friends do. I know about being the local IP, but I specificly need to be able to connect to my public IP for specific reasons.

I am using XP SP2, Speedstream 4200 router.

A:Need to be able to connect to my server via public IP.

sign up for dynamic dns (it's free) and it assigns a name to your dns, and tracks it for you. so instead of having to type ip address you can type myserver.homeip.net, ect.
