    I have a few computers sitting around doing nothing and would like to make them into proxy servers. How do I go about doing this?

    How would you get IPs for your home computers?

    on windows i can't help you.. on linux simply install squid and google "squid anonymous proxy" for articles regarding how to configure it.

    also take in mind you need real IPs at those machines to get them working as proxies

    Yes you should definitely be using linux or some unix based system excluding mac os.

    And as for the services, it depends on what type of proxy you want to run. But to find what you need, you can always google: <distro name> <proxy type> server - example: ubuntu 12.04 socks5 server

    Also, you need to be familiar with port forwarding if you are planning on doing this from your home / business.

    Hope this helps.

    You can set-up a proxy on both linux and Win, the only thing I can say is that they will not be cost efficient.

    If you have a dynamic IP then it will not work since you must change the configuration each time you connect to the internet.

    If they share the same internet connection that mean that you have only one IP so you will get only 1 proxy....

    If let's say you have different connections with static IP's then the electricity bill for the 3 computers, since they will run 24/7 will be higher then the cost of 3 private proxy. And you have great chances that the connection speed will be much lower then the one you will get from a dedicated service.

    If you really want to do that I suggest you get a VPS and set-up a proxy server on that.

    Thank you
