How to bypass proxy auth using squid


Hi there..

My ISP forcing me to use their proxy (Probably "Proxy Auth"), resulting an annoying username/password box poping up each time when I try to browse internet with a new window.I am looking for some way around this, so, Id be able to surf the net freely.

Can I put my ISP's proxy server username/password in a local squid server and make this local squid server as my winxp client pcs default gateway to be able to browse freely without using ISP's proxy?

Thanks in Advance.

yeah squid can do this, but if that is the *only* reason to use a local proxy, i'd suggest trying out tinyproxy, which will have a ~5 line config file to do exactly what you want.

Thnx acid_kewpie,

But I need a little details information from you. I can't find any directives to input my ISP's proxy address/username/password information in "TinyProxy's .conf file..

can you explain a little more where to set those stuff..
or, ~5 lines example conf file??

Regards,

N.B: I Also need NAT running on the same server to provide a 20+ PC network support.

you are aren't you... i've scroued google and i've been unable to actually find out if this is part of the latest versions of a feature that's promised to be due shortly. if it doesn't you can *definitely* do it on squid as part of defining a standard cache peer.
