    Hi,

    This is my very first contribution in this forum. I just finished setting squid on my vps linux box. Just to remind myself, I write the steps on my blog. I share here because most of you need good proxy just like me ;)

    Here is the link:
    http://www.dodyweb.com/your-own-high-anonymous-private-proxy-with-squid-on-ubuntu/

    I'm not a linux geek, I may not able to answer your questions. At least it work for me and I'm quite happy. Now ordering 10 more IP blocks for my vps ;)

    Yeah, as others said it does require some technical knowledge but if you've played around with any *NIX computers before then it should be a piece of cake. Great guide!

    setting up squid is the easy part, the OP was a great simple way of getting squid installed. The issue is finding providers that will give you c-blocks of IPs at a cheap rate.

    Example, many "exclusive providers" give you an exclusive IP for $2.
    Multiply that by 253, and you are spending $506 for a C-Block (throw in a discount, and you're at like $450)

    Get your own dedi for $75, install squid, say you get a Cblock for $100.
    Now for $175 total you have your own CBlock... truely exclusive
    enjoy!

    Provider also asked what will I do with the IPs. I said I use for my domains ;)
    Do they suspend/terminate our account if we say "I want them for private proxies" ?

    I don't think telling them they are for proxies is a good idea. Some hosts follow ICANN rules strictly. You are supposed to have a good reason for needing dedicated IPs.

    Tell the you need them for domains and that each domain needs it's own SSL certificate. This satisfies ICANN rules.

    You'll need to download a Windows binary from their site (Google squid cache). Although I haven't used it, WinProxy is also a popular alternative.
