I want to create a straightforward proxy server for my friends abroad, who encounter internet censorship. I am aware of some possibilities, but my knowledge is very scarce:
- PHP proxy scripts, which I could use on my hosted webserver. However, after trying out a few, they appear to have problems with facebook and gmail, and this is exactly what I want to be accessible.
- Dedicated servers are relatively expensive.
- Apparently it is possible to make your router act as a proxy server, but with my unix skills I`m not very enthusiastic to go flashing firmwares..
Are there more possibilities? Am I misevaluating something?
