    I have a dedicated server and currently 2 IP's and about 15 domains on it.
    What does it take be able to make my own proxies.
    It's a Linux server running Centos 5.

    Download polipo for linux, set it up to only allow your IP and you have an elite http proxy set up in less than 5 minutes.
    Some datacenters do not allow proxies at all, check their terms.

    squid is much more than you'll need and takes masses of ressources compared to a light proxy.
    If you need a simple http proxy, get polipo. It's the fastest and smallest one I know.
    If you need more features get privoxy.
    squid is really rarely required and takes time to learn the configuration, but of course it has most features.

    dont use normal proxies... they only rewrite partial bits.... to name just one flaw in your system..... use systems that are tried+tested for this task... ones that even check your outgoing http headers for sensitive data... IE: privoxy

    ...ok ok ok....well admitadly i had to spend weeks of reading, testing ohh.. and more reading to learn this..... lemme disseminate some info for u guys (if indeed u wanna do things right)....

    You know your IP/proxy will get sh1t listed if u over do it and dont actually anonymize the traffic?

    There are sollutions... but they dont come pre-installed with guis.....

    Squid + at least 8 tors talking into it + privoxy to ensure your not leaking important/secret data (IE: YOUR TRACEABLE IPS!)

    Privoxy is the key.... squid... like and octopus has a tenticle going to each tor... its kinda complex at first but once u set up the first functional tentacle its pretty much copy/paste, change a few ports, ad new init script for next instance...... go google it for details.

    I'll help you do it if u like with general advice, but best it to actually understand what you are doing and read documentation... dont get your damn dedi's IP blacklisted [DOH], particularly cause whats the point of all this when they can trace who owns that IP/who owns site beeing buffed? ohhh... funny.. those names seem similar hmmmm......

    Another tip....u can rent VPS's specifcly for seeding (IE: p2p traffic/tor)

    Tor is a slow beast.. even on a dedi... running more VIA squid means instead of ppl seeing your http spam or whatever coming from a certain IP for say 3-5 minutes (which is what tor does, watch a tcpdump/wireshark) Using multiple tors just mashes things up... brilliant .... ohh and even then its still not 100% secure, but u can do the math its _way_ better.... tho if yer hosting it can slow down some services... all depends

    but i have unlimited bandwidth so if u have B/W consciderations well.... might wanna read some forums on tor anyway.... call me paranoid but its worth it doing your homework! -and good luck :)

    did someone say light proxy btw? *cough* nginx *cough* its like sendmail vs qmail :)

    /me checks his tin-foil hat is secure
