Not sure if this merits a thread, but this is an easy way you can create a series of super fast private proxies, through amazon, cheaply (Type "ec2 free tier pricing" into google and you'll see how cheap / free it is) Create proxies: 1. Join Amazon's AWS. 2. Follow these steps: First watch this video up until 3:30 ish: (can't post URLS type "Create a Personal VPN server on the Amazon Cloud (EC2)" in google and go to video) MAC USERS: Stop once you've logged into the SSH (video explains how to do this) and go to step 3. WINDOWS USERS FOLLOW THESE STEPS: 2a. Download putty and putty gen at: (Can't post URLs type "putty download" in google and go to first result. With the PEM file that was downloaded by following the steps in the video, run it through PuTTyGEN to convert it to a .PPK file. 2b. Runny PuTTy.exe. 2c. In the box that says host name add the address the guy shows in the video. Leave the port setting as is. 2d. From the list to the left, expand/select "connection" and then expand "SSH" which should be underneath it 2e. Click on SSH and click the browse button to the right on the page that comes up. 2f. Select your created PEM file. 2g. Go back to Session from the list on the left and select "open" 3. Install Squid proxy server: Type the following line into the window that appears (after connecting through PuTTy or in the terminal window you have open after connecting if you're on a MAC) and hit "y" and enter if prompted: Code: sudo apt-get install squid Then type: Code: sudo pico /etc/squid/squid.conf Hit enter when the program launches and type out the following changing the IP address to your IP address: acl a src 123.456.789.123 http_access allow a When you're done hit the following key combos: ctrl + o Enter ctrl + x Finally type the following: Code: sudo /etc/init.d/squid restart Create multiple proxies easily: Now that you've done this, go back to your AWS control panel and select the EC2 tab. Check the box next to your instance then find a button that says "Instance Actions" above. Press the button and from the list select "Create Image (EBS AMI)" It'll prompt you for a name, type in anything and make the image. Click the "view image" link in the box that appears and wait a bit while the image is created. It takes a fair bit, refresh every now and then. When finished, check the box next to the image you created and press the "Launch" button. Find the "number of instances" box and type in as many proxies as you like. To use these proxies To use these proxies in the tradition IPORT way, simply copy their public DNS (see video), remove the "-" dashes from the number and replace with "." or periods then add a ":" colon at the end and use the port 3128. E.g.: 126.96.36.199:3128 You now have as many private proxies as you like. I suggest only keeping the instances behind the proxies on when you're using them to save your free hours of usage per month. To turn a proxy off, select "Shutdown" from the "instance actions" list. If their is any interest in this, I'll create a little python script that automatically shuts down and turns on your proxies. If this is useful, feel free to rep.
