Newbie - Forwarding Proxy Setup
« on: April 02, 2013, 10:37:39 AM »
Hello,

I am almost completely new to the concept of proxies, in that I don't even know the proper term for what I am trying to achieve. I am trying to setup a proxy on my home computer that performs the following function:

From my work computer I wish to connect to my proxy and route all my work PC's external traffic through my home computer, securely:

((encrypted data/packet from work PC)encrypted for proxy) -> proxy decryption=(encrypted data from work PC) -> external(internet) site -> (encrypted response) -> (proxy encryption(encrypted response)) -> work PC

In words: I want to route my HTTP/HTTPS traffic through my home computer so that I can securely tunnel through my work firewall (I am willing to use my home computer's Windows login for authentication, if Windows provides some sort of functionality for this).

I currently use RDP to to connect to my home computer for browsing, but I want to cut all the RDP overhead and just reroute packets (again, securely/encrypted) so that I can potentially use this setup from anywhere in the world with any internet application.

Please guide me in the right direction.

Thanks for the read.

You can setup a proxy server on your home PC using CCProxy or WinGate. But they don't encrypt the traffic.
Elite Proxy Switcher - Easily testing and using proxies.
Socks Proxy Checker - To be your chief socks proxy checker.
Buy Proxy - Buy checked proxies from My-Proxy easily and quickly.

Thanks. Are those Open Source by any chance?
