Proxy Web Traffic
There is an assigned bug to sort out blocking webbugs and trackers, in the meantime there is Privoxy...
Follow Install Packages to install
privoxy, then start it:
apt-get install privoxy service privoxy start
/etc/environment and add:
ftp_proxy=http://localhost:8118/ http_proxy=http://localhost:8118/ https_proxy=http://localhost:8118/ FTP_PROXY=http://localhost:8118/ HTTP_PROXY=http://localhost:8118/ HTTPS_PROXY=http://localhost:8118/
Reboot the phone to change the root filesystem to read-only and to ensure that sessions have the env vars above set (you can check in a terminal with
Visit http://config.privoxy.org/ to test it is working.
Set the root file system to be read-write and edit
/etc/privoxy/config adding this line with the port the ssh tunnel will be on, in this case 3128:
forward-socks5 / 127.0.0.1:3128 .
Add a list of local networks you don't want the tunnel to be used for (so you can use the web browser to login to public wifi networks for example):
forward 192.168.*.*/ .
Create a script to start a ssh tunnel, eg
~/bin/proxy containing something like this (remove the
v for non-verbose output in the terminal):
#!/bin/bash if [[ $1 ]]; then REMOTE_SERVER=$1 else echo "Run this script like this:" echo "/bin/bash $0 server-name-from-ssh-config-file" exit fi ssh -vTnN -C -F "$HOME/.ssh/config" -D 3128 $REMOTE_SERVER
This works best if you have short names for servers in your
~/.ssh/config and have ssh keys set up.
Start the tunnel (note you might need to run it as follows unless you ssh to localhost first and have
~/bin/ in your
$PATH, then you can simply type
proxy after you
chmod 750 ~/bin/proxy):
bash ~/bin/proxy your-ssh-server
Visit a page that reports your IP address, eg https://parrot.transitionnetwork.org/myip.shtml
If your network is very unreliable, try adding this to
