  1. I'm copying this article here in case the original source's site comes under attack or otherwise goes down.

    Original Source:

    1) Grab this Disk Image, and run the package inside it.

    2) Look in your Applications folder for a folder called squid. Inside THAT folder, there is a folder called etc. Inside the etc folder, there is a file called squid.conf. Open it in your text editor of choice.

    3) To restrict access to people with Iranian IP addresses find line 1885 (which is blank), just above # And finally deny all other access to this proxy. Copy/paste this code:

    acl TRUSTED src

    acl TRUSTEDTOO src

    4) Go to the next line, line 1887, which says http_access deny all and replace it with the following: http_access allow TRUSTED TRUSTEDTOO

    5) On line 705, change the line # cache_access_log /Applications/Squid/var/logs/access.log to cache_access_log none. This is what makes users anonymous.

    6) Open up your Terminal and type sudo /Applications/Squid/sbin/squid -z. Type in your password and hit return. It should give you some output. As long as it doesnt say error, you are fine. If it gives you a squid is already running error, try sudo /Applications/Squid/sbin/squid -k reconfigure instead.

    7) Go to and get your IP Address. Note it down.

    8) Tell @austinheap on Twitter or via email the IP address you got in step 7. Hell see that it gets to the right people. However else you want to publicize your IP is up to you.
