While there is a lot of information on this, none of it seems to be geared towards a novice. I setup this page to help people understand what a proxy is and how to set one up. Most of the config work was done and posted on Austin Heaps blog, but again it was scattered in various posts and comments and difficult for a novice to sort out. I hope this is easy and straight forward. Proxies: How you can help Iran : SOLIDARITY (I tried to copy and paste it into here but it loses all it's formatting, and when I paste the html it doesn't parse properly) It's a squid install, and here is the config file being used. It only allows connections from Iran, blocks access to your network and blocks known government IPs. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.
