Provider that allows public proxy hosting

I'm looking for a provider that allows public proxy hosting
At college YouTube is blocked, the only way to access it is using a proxy
I know that there are publix proxy's, but they are usually slow...

When i saw the 1 pound .com deal from crazydomains i thought, lets create a proxy just for my school to access youtube (almost everyone youtubeing at college :P)
The only thing i need now is a VPS on which i can host the proxy, So does anyone know a host who allows this?

Thanks

    I know haha :) but i can tweak this proxy a bit to not allow HD videos from YouTube

    If it's just for YouTube and nothing abusive, then I would imagine not too many providers would have an issue with that, but you should be sure to check with them first.

    Why not just make a VPN? Many schools say that proxies are not allowed, yet have nothing that says VPNs are not allowed. But you would need a lot of IPs for a public VPN...

  • The thing is, you need to make it only allow YouTube to be proxied, otherwise it can be easily abused (even if it's only YouTube they can spam comments). And of course, some people aren't gonna like it that way (a lot of people just get a music video running in the background then do something else).

    We can't install network adapters (wich is needed by a VPN) at school computers...

    @Jacob said: what location?

    Doesn't really matter, as long as it has atleast a 30mbit connection

  • Use SSH tunneling, private proxy, so should work everywhere.

    Educating your friends how SSH works might be another thing though.

    Also, if you're meaning to publicize this, just be aware that it probably won't take for administration to ban your public proxy IP if it somehow gets out.

    Can't use SSH at college computers..., they've blocked almost everything

    If it there's even a small chance for the admins to find out, I can guarantee that it will happen :)

    You'll have to educate your friends about proxies anyway.

  • @Bogdacutuu said: I can guarantee that it will happen

    Well the strange thing is, they don't block proxy's and they also wont (I asked this my teacher at the beginning of the year... and he said proxy's are allowed to be used...)

  • @joodle said: Can't use SSH at college computers..., they've blocked almost everything

    How so? You edit the ssh config so your ssh service is listening on port 80 or 443 and you roll :).. putty doesnt need elevated privileges on the client machine so its fine also..
    you can of course create a pre-packed version of puttytray for example. keybased ssh login and you only tell the passphrase to those who you would like to share it :)

    I think he wants to make it public for his college

  • @fixidixi said: You edit the ssh config so your ssh service is listening on port 80 or 443 and you roll

    Already tried that... they blocked SSH itself for some reason

    @Bogdacutuu said: I think he wants to make it public for his college

    Yep!

  • @Bogdacutuu:
    then dont even add passphrase to the key..
    you can add a portable firefox configured to use the tunnel set up so ppl in the collage only need to download unpack and use (just create a cmd file to start putty and firefox maybe a notepad explaining that they need to hit the OK button in putty before they want to browse :) )

    @joodle:
    what OS's are we talking about? also what do you mean by 'blocked ssh itself'?

  • @fixidixi said: what OS's are we talking about?

    most likely linux, windows would be a waste

  • @fixidixi said: what OS's are we talking about

    Windows 7 lol

  • @joodle said: Windows 7 lol

    good luck getting that licensed on a VPS

  • @Bogdacutuu said: good luck getting that licensed on a VPS

    Oh you mean wich OS on the VPS?

    Linux ofcourse lol

  • @Bogdacutuu
    I was about to ask about the client machine :)

  • @joodle:
    what did happen when you've been trying to connect to a machine? a debug log perhaps?

  • Anyway, back on topic, need a host for this :)

  • @fixidixi said: what did happen when you've been trying to connect to a machine

    Nope, it just wont connect

  • Could you post a debug log?

  • @fixidixi said: Could you post a debug log?

    Don't got them haha, we can only access our own "Network Drive" at college, that's it
    And i'm home at the moment

  • hmm we have our own college vpn here :) so we can access anything at home we need

  • @fixidixi said: hmm we have our own college vpn here :) so we can access anything at home we need

    We are getting that soon here haha

  • @joodle said: We are getting that soon here haha

    You mean Soon ™?

  • @Amfy said: You mean Soon ™?

    lol?

    Ugh this thread is going offtopic haha...
    Really need a host for this

  • I always use Squid.
    Have you tried it?

  • @ErawanArifNugroho said: I always use Squid.

    Have you tried it?

    Things like that are also not working, already tried it haha
    When i go to youtube.com i get to a page where it says Local Deny (website url here)

  • @joodle
    obviously it wont work out of the box. you need to edit the acls..

  • Wanna try my squid proxy? :D

  • Lol... YouTube the URL itself is blocked on my school computer, any proxy that you apply to your browser won't work, aswell as VPNs...

    I already got the whole proxy ready, only need a VPS for it...

  • Blocked in the computer, restricted sites?
    What kind of the OS is it?

  • @ErawanArifNugroho said: What kind of the OS is it?

    Windows 7 lol

  • @ErawanArifNugroho:
    read the posts from top..

  • Ok, install new browser which is not blocking youtube, if you have the privileges. :D
    Or, just create a vm inside that computer :p

  • Have you tried Tor, using the Torbrowser package. If that works, then you can follow some guides online to add flash.

    Also try Tor bridges, if Tor is blocked. Tor should be fast enough to view normal Youtube.

  • @ErawanArifNugroho said: install new browser which is not blocking youtube

    We even tried portable ones...

    @ErawanArifNugroho said: just create a vm inside that computer

    Yeah... not gonna happen

  • @joodle said: Well the strange thing is, they don't block proxy's and they also wont

    It is definitely not strange. Their goal is not to prevent students to waste time. The school goal is to protect itself from liabilities; they dont'want the school IP eventually listed on shady web sites logs. Should this happen, your proxy IP will be on the log instead: the scapegoat is ready. Are you sure about the "public" part of your project? A password protected proxy, for friends only, could be a better choice.

  • Some school computers always connect to a proxy. Our school does this, but it's more of a 24 hour school, with over 1,500 people there is probably a good reason why it uses a proxy.

    I'd be happy to host you. I'll give you VPS2 plan at the price of VPS1, (so it will be faster), and I'll let you use it for a proxy. However please be aware if it is abused I will have to get it off my network, but with normal use I don't care.
    Just PM me here if you want it.
