I'd like to run a SOCKS proxy on my etch box so I can easily configure
firefox or others services to have an unlimited access to the internet
while I'm behind restricted firewall.
I want to restrict use with username and password not from a specific
IP, so I can really connect from everywhere. Though I noticed that in
firefox do not allow to set username/password for proxies. Fortunately
gnome does. Any advise on that?
So my choice was dante. Here is the two doc I used:
as well as the man pages
=============== start of /etc/danted.conf ===============
# the server will log both via syslog, to stdout and to /var/log/lotsoflogs
logoutput: syslog stdout /var/log/lotsoflogs
# The server will bind to the address 10.1.1.1, port 1080 and will only
# accept connections going to that address.
#internal: 10.1.1.1 port = 1080
# Alternatively, the interface name can be used instead of the address.
internal: eth0 port = 11080
# all outgoing connections from the server will use the IP address
# list over acceptable methods, order of preference.
# A method not set here will never be selected.
# If the method field is not set in a rule, the global
# method is filled in for that rule.
# methods for socks-rules.
#method: username none #rfc931
# methods for client-rules.
#or if you want to allow rfc931 (ident) too
#method: username rfc931 none
#or for PAM authentification
# An important section, pay attention.
# when doing something that can require privilege, it will use the
# when running as usual, it will use the unprivileged userid of:
# If you compiled with libwrap support, what userid should it use
# when executing your libwrap commands? "libwrap".
=============== I removed some commented lines ===============
# netstat -n -a
show that something is listening on port 11080
my etch box his behind a NAT, but port 11080 was redirected in TCP/UDP
The problem is that when I setup the the proxy in firefox or in gnome
from the outside, I don't get internet access
I don't know how to spot the problem. Is there a telnet command or
something that allow to check if the proxy is running OK?
I tried to configure socks4-server without much success either.
Any help would be appreciated
