Is there a way to connect to a ipv4 website using an ipv6 proxy? cause I have vps that only has ipv6 so I want to setup a proxy server using ipv6 only but want to connect to ipv4 websites

I've used Privoxy in such a setup for a while, that is, I told Opera to use [::1]:8000 as a proxy. On this port, Privoxy listened and then initiated the actual connection. Obviously, this computer also had IPv4 connectivity, as the proxy was running locally, but I see no reason why it shouldn't work with a remote proxy.

The same is probably possible with any other HTTP proxy, such as Squid.
