Running Your Own Proxy Server - Video Tutorial
« on: May 28, 2012, 06:34:59 PM »
Hey all (/Terry)

I spent so long putting this video tutorial together that I've decided to find some new forums to post it on. It runs just over an hour and covers setting up Wingate 6.2 on Windows 7. The proxy forum I spend a lot of time on has many members that don't use English as their primary language. I've added written "sub-titles" to the video in the hope it will make it more accessable for people from non-english speaking places.

I guess I need to put out a warning since I've noticed an issue with my wingate proxy service. After 4 months or so of running the exact setup described in the video (i.e. just a simple http proxy with no mail support of any kind) I see the email spammers have been making use of my machine.

I'm not sure how routing HTTP format traffic, SSL encrypted or otherwise, to an SMTP server on port 25 would work, but it sure looks like that's the jist of whats happening. It definitely seems to proxy just fine with nothing but wingate's http proxy server (with SSL enabled). As a matter of fact, if it weren't for the references to port 25 I wouldn't be 100% sure they are spam.



The entries in the pic are from wingate's View->Activity window. A connection opens/closes every 2 to 10 seconds.

If you turn off support for SSL completely :



Then you reduce activity to what looks like normal activity except for PacifiCrack.com.



Is anybody really good at whois and the like - Who exactly is pacificrack.com???? Are they the other public key holder in the SSL links??

At least until I get a filter set up to prevent being exploited I'm shutting down except for testing. If I decide to spend a few hours with the cache  viewer and wireshark I'll post an FYI about what goes through my machine. I really just wanted to mention the spam issue I'm having so anyone  that built a server from the video can watch for it and decide for themselves what to do about it.

Thanks for the tutorial. Has anyone tried to successfully set one up using this yet?
If all else fail, use brute force.
