reroute traffic through linux box
My school's network only allows access to certain websites only if you're on the school's network. When I am home however, I cannot access these websites.
To solve this, I was thinking of setting up a linux box on the school's campus and rerouting my home traffic through the linux box. I'm not too sure on the terminology or how this would be accomplished.
So I was hoping for something like this:
My computer sends request to server. Server accesses the resource I wish. Sends it back to me.
So the Server acts as my window to the internet
MY COMPUTER --> SERVER --> INTERNET
And if I go to whatismyipaddress.com from my computer, it should show the ip of the server since all my internet traffic is being routed through there.
So, how would I go about doing this. Would this be setting up a proxy server? Are there any proxy server distrobutions? Or is it something else?
