I set up a proxy to contribute to the effort to get information out of
Iran after the nutzo (sic) election. It was really easy to set up squid
to listen on port 3128 and only work for specific subnets which are in
Iran; you need a static IP to make it really work, tho.
The most frequent use of these proxies so far has been to let them
access Twitter via proxies to tell reporters what's happening.
I followed the steps (for Linux, Mac, and Windows) from
to make it work properly for the specific subnets there, and also used
to make sure it's being used how I'm intending to share it:
# Only allow facebook, youtube, and twitter, gmail, etc:
acl domain1 dstdomain .twitter.com .gmail.com .google.com
.flickr.com .yimg.com .digg.com .facebook.com .fbcdn.net
.youtube.com .ytimg.com .googlevideo.com
http_access allow domain1
acl allotherwebsites dst 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
http_access deny allotherwebsites
I sent mail to me at austinheap.com <mailto:me at austinheap.com> with the IP
address of the host to get it added to their running list.
