Boost your Internet browsing - Install Polipo - LINUX

Polipo is a Linux proxy, like squid but it is intended in a personal use, I used to use squid as my personal proxy but because I have a PIV HT processor and 1 Gig of RAM, in Laptop that approach was just to heavy for it.

Now with Polipo things will change, well go to the installation.
Installation

Código: Seleccionar todo

apt-get install polipo
There is almost no need to change the configuration file as with the defaults it will work great as a personal firewall.

But if you are configuring it as you home proxy, you can change these lines on the file /etc/polipo/config

Código: Seleccionar todo

proxyAddress = "0.0.0.0"    # IPv4 only

allowedClients = 127.0.0.1, 192.168.42.0/24
be sure to change 192.168.42.0/24 for your own IP address range, in general no further changes are needed.

Firefox configuration

Go to Edit->Preferences-> Select Advanced and then click on setting, then Select "Manual proxy configuration" and enter the IP of the PC where polipo is installed and enter the port which is: 8123

Gnome configuration
Go to Desktop->preferences->Network Proxy And Select "Manual Proxy Configuration" and also here enter the IP of the PC where Polipo installed and the port 8123

As a final step you can configure your apt if you are using Debian or Ubuntu, I always do, that way my Laptop gets its updated really fast as usually my Desktop have already downloaded them.

Apt Configuration to work with proxy

Código: Seleccionar todo

vi /etc/apt/apt.conf
And add this line

Código: Seleccionar todo

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://127.0.0.1:8123";
be sure to change the IP to the one that corresponds to your Polipo server.
