OK - I've been pulling my hair out over this for 24hrs now...
I'm trying to setup an apache2 proxy server on my ubuntu VPS. So that I can SSH via Putty and access the internet through the proxy.
I'm using the steps in this guide to help me:
Theres a few steps missing in there like having to run
apt-get install libapache2-mod-proxy-html
to get the mod_proxy to work.
I have been mildly successfull in that I can open up the ssh tunnel and then firefox will bring up a blank webpage for whatever site I go to. If I close the tunnel I then get a proxy refused error. Which must mean I'm doing something right? right?
Any help very much appreciated.
