Install a proxy on a Virtualmin server


i have an ISP which slows the streaming from YouTube.
I have a server with Virtualmin to host several small sites

I would like to have this server act as a proxy when i’m streaming YouTube.

What can i install on the server to do that ? socks proxy ? tunnel ? do i have to install it in Virtualmin or Webmin or do a yum something ?

Silly question probably



You could actually do something like that with SSH. You can use SSH as a socks proxy. You can just search on “ssh socks proxy” to get some ideas as to how to do that.


Oh i have just found i could use Squid to make a proxy … works fine
Thanks anyway

Thanks. Nice post.
