    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:
    http://famvdploeg.com/blog/?p=32

    Theres a few steps missing in there like having to run
    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.

    would this help anyone help me?

    Output from Linux Proxy Server
    Code:
    [email protected]:~# netstat -tupan | egrep '(:8080|putty)'
    tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:8080            0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN         1090/apache2
    
    What is the listen 1090? Is that my problem?

    Here is an out put from my Windows Client running Putty

    Code:
    C:\>netstat -an | find ":8080"
      TCP    127.0.0.1:8080         0.0.0.0:0              LISTENING
    So I assume my tunnel is all up OK.

    That's just the process ID, not a port.

    Are there any errors in your logs, especially Apache's error log?
