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

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.
