Subject Re: [users@httpd] Re: can a proxy helps to get an IP of another coubtry ?

Very interesting. But would not there a socks be configured in the
remote german server ?
I don't know how to configure socks. But I have already configured squid
as an anonymous proxy with user authentication based on ncsa_auth . If I
check the IP now it it showing the german IP of the server. The only
disadvantage is squid is really a heavy service to use as an anonymous
proxy only.
