    Hello, I would like to share my experience about creating a special proxy.
    I take a small vps with 64-128-196 megabyte of RAM.
    You can get a trial vps for seven days to many web hosters

    I installed Ubuntu 8.04 as operating system. Several providers give you a basic Ubuntu installation: you have to install openssh and dillo using this commands:

    $ sudo apt-get install openssh-server
    $ sudo apt-get install dillo

    OpenSSH (ht*p://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenSSH) allows you to connect remotely to your vps and enabling x forward support, you can open a window in you home pc (or laptop) but application is on virtual private server.
    Dillo is a light web browser, which takes very little of memory.

    To enable X forwarding open /etc/ssh/sshd_config file on vps and change X11Forwarding no to X11Forwarding yes

    Reload ssh daemon on vps:
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart

    On your laptop, in order to connect graphically to dillo on vps, digit:

    $ sudo apt-get install openssh-client
    $ ssh -X dikdik@vps-ip-address dillo

    dikdik will be replace with your login name on vps and vps-ip-address with the ip address of you virtual server.
    After running them, it has to appear a window of dillo web browser (on your laptop) that is installed on your virtual server.

    So you can surf on Internet using this "special" proxy.
