    I was installing glype, but glype is only a webinterface - i need a REAL proxy where i can add the IP into my browser and use as proxy IP.

    Or do i simply use my existing apache webserver for this?

    Needs to be light-weight and low memory usage since my VPS is already loaded with a lot of stuff..and no web-interface, a "real" proxy.

    Help appreciated :)

    If you want a HTTP proxy try squid (aka squid-cache). It's quite popular so you should be able to easily find support for it. Make sure that you set a password and allow all headers (for anonymous proxy).

    If you want a SOCKS proxy try "Socks Server 5" (aka ss5).

    I'm not sure about squid but ss5 is resource-light. I'd say it uses less than 5MB RAM when idle.

    I use tinyproxy, 2 minutes to install and configure - jobs a goodun!

    edit: If you are using FF, use the ProxySwitch plugin and its easy to switch through the proxies.

    Definitely check your proxy afterwards for anonymity, especially when using squid, you easily turn on transparency there.
