fedora as http proxy (squid?)??


i have fedora 8 running at home and want to use it as a web proxy from work to get by certain filters. what is the quickest, simplest method to do this? i see that squid is installed by default but i have no idea if its running or configured. i would like it to listen on maybe port 8888 and allow access to anyone from anywhere without needing a username/password.

thanks in advance!

while we are naturally inclined to say that if that's your companies policy, then tough, you're better off using a socks proxy than an http proxy for this really, vastly simpler. on windows putty can acts as this and just needs an ssh server remotely to connect to.

you'd read the putty docs, and google for "putty socks" or something
