Unhappy Howto make a proxy for redirect all traffic


Hi all,

I need to redirect all traffic(TCP,UDP) from my pc over internet and connect to a proxy.Then navigate and connect to applications more safelly.

More or less like this:

(My PC(windows)) ---> (My router) ---> INET ---> (Proxy(linux)) ---> INET

Googling I found some information about proxies (Squid + IPtables), is this the best choice?

Thx

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

And I don't understand what you're trying to achieve with
a proxy that sits *somewhere* on the internet.

Also a proxy won't take care of ALL traffic, squid will handle
your HTTP, and that's that.


Cheers,
Tink

Question

Hi Tinkster,

I want to proxy my connection because I have a high latency(>600 ms) to connect a server, bad routing of my isp. I have one server in another isp that it has a low latency against same server.

Thanks.

Did you run a traceroute to see at which hop the time bumps up? Do you
know for sure how the timing would be with your proxy? Btw, that's not
a good term for it - really what you're after (or should be after) is a
VPN type appliance.


Cheers,
Tink

With my connection I need 14 hops to arrive to server (600ms), with connection of "future proxy", only need 8 (my connection 60ms + server connection 50ms).

Where can find information about VPN type appliance?

Thanks for all.
