    Hi guys,

    I have a place where you can get 20 ips and a VPS for a nice $5/month. If someone teaches me to install squid I will exchange the place for where you can get these ips and I will give you my limited traffic ebook that I personally made. If you don't want these I can pay you $5 instead.

    Regards,
    $4me$4you

    Here is the instruction on how to install Squid proxy server:

    1. Download Squid Cache

    You can download Squid at
    Code:
    http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/
    . There, you can see a lot of version of Squid. I prefer you to download the latest version. Here is the link for the latest version:

    Code:
    http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.0/squid-3.0.STABLE8.tar.gz
    Note: If you want to download it directly from your server. Please use the following command:

    wget
    Code:
    http://www.squid-cache.org/Versions/v3/3.0/squid-3.0.STABLE8.tar.gz
    2. Squid Cache Installation

    To extract the downloaded compressed file, please use the following command:

    tar -zxvf squid-3.0.STABLE8.tar.gz

    this will create a directory named squid-3.0.STABLE8 at the current directory. Next, go into the directory:

    cd squid-3.0.STABLE8

    To build and install the Squid Cache, type:

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/squid
    make all
    make install

    The command above will install squid in directory /usr/local/squid

    3. Customize and Run Squid Cache

    1. customize the squid.conf configuration file:
    vi /usr/local/squid/etc/squid.conf

    2. Initalise the cache:
    /usr/local/squid/sbin/squid -z

    3. start the cache:
    /usr/local/squid/sbin/squid

    Note: If you have problem to initialize the cache, please give the write permission (preferably chmod 777) for the specified directory.

    Verify Squid Cache Installation

    netstat -tulpn | grep 3128

    Output:

    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:3128 0.0.0.0:*

    If you get the output above, you have successfully install Squid proxy server. :)

    4. Client Configuration

    Open a web browser > Tools > Internet option > Network settings > and setup Squid server IP address and port # 3128.

    Good Luck!

    First question - what OS your server running?
    I can help you with squid. You need transparent proxy or not?
