I am trying to make a proxy server for my house to connect to the internet through. I am trying to use phpproxy, but I have no background in php or anything like this other than a little html. Can anyone show me how to do this please?

By the way here is the code included in PHPProxy

<?php

# edit this

    # set this to your client machine or proxy,

    # comment it out if you don't want protection

    $allow_ip = '1.2.3.4';

    # define this if you want PHPProxy not to connect

    # directly, but use parent proxy instead

   # $proxy_host = 'proxy.ml.lv';

   # $proxy_port = 8080;

    $proxy_host = '';

    $proxy_port = 0;

    # write debug info into server error_log

   # $debug = 1;

    $debug = 0;

# end of config

    if (!empty($allow_ip) && $REMOTE_ADDR != $allow_ip)

        exit;

function debug ($msg) {

    global $debug;

    if ($debug) error_log('phpproxy: '. $msg, 0);

}

    unset($url);

    $strip_header = 0;

    $set_content_type = 0;

    if ($REQUEST_METHOD == 'GET') {

        debug("GET request");

        # just page with inputs

        if (!isset($_GET['url'])) {

            debug("show page");

?>

<html><body>

<form method="POST">

<input type="text" name="url" size="70">

<input type="submit" name="get" value="Download">

<input type="submit" name="clickme" value="Get a link">

</form>

</body></html>

<?php

            exit;

        

        # url is hex encoded real url

        } else {

            debug("download by encoded url");

            $url = pack("H*", $_GET['url']);

            $strip_header = 1;

            debug("decoded url: $url");

        }

    } else if ($REQUEST_METHOD == 'POST') {

        debug("POST request");

        

        # just proceed to download

        if (isset($_POST['get'])) {

            debug("download by POST'ed url");

        # create obfuscated link end exit

        } else if (isset($_POST['clickme'])) {

            debug("create hex encoded link");

            $url = $_POST['url'];

            list (, $hex) = unpack('H'. strlen($url)*2, $url);

            $link = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] .'?url='. $hex;

            #$name = substr(strrchr($url, "/"), 1);

Looks like you just have to place that file on a web server. So if you have a web server, place the file in your web directory, and it should enable you to use it as a proxy.

PHProxy is a program for accessing blocked internet sites from other places, it is not technical a proxy its just called PHProxy I.E. a proxy caches pages to speed them up, it can also block sites you don't want people to visit.
Try out http://3proxy.ru/
I have never used it but it has great reviews and is avaliable for Linux/UNIX and Windows

True.

If you don't want the hassle of setting up a proxy, probably the simplest is to use Google Language Translation as a http proxy.
