    I'm looking for a vps host to install squid on. I'm going to be only doing grey-hat marketing. Anyone know of a good host with the following of what I'll need:

    - Located in USA
    - Linux Ubuntu 7.1/8.04
    - HyperVM Control Panel (I know the situation about it being hacked)
    - IP Addresses 5 to start
    - 128 Meg RAM
    - 100 Gig

    If I can't get that, I'm looking for another configuration that I would be able to easily install squid. I'm more than happy to act as a referral for someone. PM if you like

    I've installed squid on linux - it wasn't difficult at all. There is an NT version but I found ccproxy to get the job done. Freeproxy (windows) was user friendly but not powerful enough. 3proxy was a pain to get setup but it is performing well on a dedicated Linux machine.

    Installing squid is quick and painless depending on your needs configuring it could be a major pain. ACL's are tedious.

    Rampage,

    You apparently are one of VERY few around here that reference FreeProxy and ccProxy. I am trying to use either or and have two issues:

    1. When I do get the proxy machine to work - I am sending SMTP traffic through it. No problems - except that in the email header it shows the IP of my local machine and the hosted computer/domain name of the machine where the proxy is. (Of course it also shows the IP of the proxy server - but that's all I want - the IP of the server machine...not the name of the computer/domain and the local IP of my sending machine - How can I get rid of that extra information from the headers when sending through the proxy software?)

    2. I have VPS at 1 and 1 and no problems using the proxy software(s). Dedi at Hostgator - doesn't work?! What could be the difference - Hostagator blocking something?

    Thanks.
