Installing a HTTP Proxy on Debian 4 (ETCH)
I’m very much a Linux newbie, however, I just managed to install a HTTP proxy on my Linux box, with a view to install it on my Raspberry pi. Which will provide me with a proxy server with a dynamic IP address.
The abridged version is quite simple:
1. Run apt-get update
2. Run apt-get install tinyproxy
3. Edit /etc/tinyproxy/tinyproxyy.conf and add a “#” before the Allow lines to make the proxy public
4. Run /etc/init.d/tinyproxy restart to apply the configuration changes.
I initially thought there was a problem when I went to the proxy url directly
The following error has occured: Unknown URL type
Generated by tinyproxy (1.6.3)
But this is perfectly normal, you’re not supposed to request it directly.
