    Hi all,

    I know about sites like hidemyass, and I heard there is software you can install to permanently run your connection through a proxy.

    I am just curious about which programs are best.

    Kind regards!

    is there anythign that can run on a PC within my own network to allow me to scale images and such via proxy so i can get browsing on my ds to be smoother?? i guess kind of similar to DS hoBro, with its client server architecture. i would like to use it with the DS opera, and Bunjalloo to get images to load quicker..

    p.s. sorry if this is considered hijacking the thread..

    @blainy DS hobro can be used over the internet if you set up your port forwarding correctly.
    You probably want something like:
    http://www.squid-cache.org/ coupled with something to reduce image size (if you have seen the various sties that mess with people who use the wifi from others this is part of it, usual link is http://www.ex-parrot.com/pete/upside-down-ternet.html but it is down right now


    @OP always run through a proxy
    You have basic public proxies:
    http://www.samair.ru/proxy/
    http://proxy-list.org/en/index.php (never seen this site before 5 minutes ago)
    These can be set in basic browser settings and any application that is halfway decent. Regarding plugins they do exist and usually cycle through a list you feed them, I tend to use other methods though.

    You then have stuff like:
    http://www.torproject.org/overview.html.en
    It does what you want but it might be a bit much (it is designed to try and mask traffic origins).

    Stuff like protocol tunneling (most filters be they "pay me"* or "stop looking at this on company time" will still allow DNS and ICMP packets to go through):
    http://www.daemon.be/maarten/dnstunnel.html

    *some work by mac address (trivial to spoof) and some I have seen only block port 80 and leave everything else.
