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

Cache Error!
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.
