The main benefits of using using 3Proxy over some other proxy servers is that it's small/simple/popular and supports HTTP/SOCK4.
It's very simple to install and configure and is not difficult like other servers such as Squid for example.
The following steps will show you how to install 3Proxy on your BIP media server.
1. Installation A Proxy Server
yum -y install 3proxy
2. Add To autorun
chkconfig 3proxy on
3. Edit Configuration File
Create file /etc/3proxy.cfg with text:
timeouts 1 5 30 60 180 1800 15 60 users alex:CL:blahblah23 # change it: users nick:CL:b1pmed1a # set your user and password daemon auth strong allow * external 0.0.0.0 internal 22.214.171.124 # change it: set your server IP proxy -n -a
You just need to change few lines:
- users and passwords In this case we have two users: "alex" with password "blahblah23" and "nick" with password "b1pmed1a"
- internal IP Set your server IP
- port By default, 3proxy binds on port 3128.
Note: user's password store in plain text!
4. Run It:
service 3proxy start
5. Last Steps:Open you browser settings in tab "Proxy" and set:
Host: 126.96.36.199 Port: 3128
Type URL, after type user/password and enjoy surfing!
Note: to ensure that you are actually anonymous you can use a service like http://whatismyip.com to see if your IP has changed.

If you want to have simple and anonymous HTTP proxy server on your dedicate server / VPS as fast as possible the easiest way is to use "3proxy".
You can use every proxy as a standalone program (socks, proxy, tcppm, udppm, pop3p) or use combined program (3proxy). Combined proxy additionally supports features like access control, bandwidth limiting, limiting daily/weekly/monthly traffic amount, proxy chaining, log rotation, syslog and ODBC logging, etc.
