Serving you tube video


Hi everyone,

At work we can't watch you tube video. They are blocked... really good.
Now I do have a test web server at home running Slackware12, apache2, Mysql and PHP. My question is, Can I use my server to proxy me in accessing you tube? I'm not comfortable going to sites like www.unblockyoutube.com or whatever to watch videos. I'm afraid they would inject some virus, adware and so on and so forth in my machine.

Is it possible?


Thanks for reading.

Are you use proxy at work? If you are using proxy at work than you cannot do anything. If You have direct internet connection at work then yes you can proxy requests to your home server. but I dont think network admin allowed direct internet connection and then firewall filtered youtube .

I have checked our internet connection and found out that somehow we're not proxied. I'll double check again. If we're not then is there anyone who know how to do it???


Thanks

If you have direct connection to the internet, then you can setup your own proxy at home, or use free proxies, those you can find on google

Have you thought that maybe youtube was blocked for a reason, like they don't want you spending work time watching videos? At most places I've worked, circumventing the company's network security was grounds for firing. Just something to think about.

I'm using successfully SSH tunneling to encapsulate all the traffic... U should do this in that way:

At home, setup you server to accept SSH connections (port forward from the router).

If at work you are using windows then just open putty and in the ssh options setup a dynamic port (4500 for example). Then just connect, login and vuola'. Last step is to point your browser on the new port (proxy options - socks proxy - localhost, port 4500).

Very easy and straight forward.
