    Default anonymous proxy server

    Hi Guys

    This is not a opensuse question per se but being a opensuse user I hope it is ok to ask.

    I am looking for an anonymous proxyserver that will be able to do secure logins from whihc I can do credit card purchases.
    The ideal is if the host thinks that I am somewhere in the US or even UK. They want to charge me more for delivering it via the www seeing that I am outside the US.

    Thanks

    there are _thousands_ of folks living in places where people ride camels
    and the powers-that-be do NOT what them to do some things (and would
    cut'em up if caught), but they do it anyway--with relative safety!

    so, you need to fiddle some more, i guess..

    The sites listed below support free, Web-based anonymous proxy servers. An anonymous Web proxy is a type of proxy server that works through a Web form (also often called a CGI proxy). Instead of configuring the address of the server in the browser as is done for HTTP orSOCKS proxies, you simply navigate to the home page of the Web / CGI proxy, where proxy functionality is then enabled for each browsing session. The top free anonymous Web proxy servers are described below.
    1. Proxify

    Unlike most other anonymous Web proxies, Proxify supports encryption via the SSL and HTTPS network protocols. Proxify also handles the basic functions of an anonymous proxy server well including hiding your IP address and filtering of cookies.

    2. Anonymouse

    Anonymouse supports Web, email and Usenet (news) proxies and has existed on the Internet for many years now. In addition to the free open access, a low-cost subscription is available for those who want to upgrade to faster proxy servers and additional services. Anonymouse supports both English and German languages.



    3. Anonymizer

    Anonymizer may the best-known name among the anonymous Web proxy services. While it does offer a free service, most of the Anonymizer site is decided to "up-selling" various related products. WHen using the free proxy, be prepared to see flashing "UPGRADE NOW!" messages in the status bar of your browser.

    4. Ninja Cloak

    This free, Web-based proxy utilizes CGI. To start an anonymous session from the Ninja Cloak home page, scroll down to the text box and enter the URL of a site to visit. An HTTPS option is also available providing additional security protection on the connection between your computer and the proxy.

    I did some research on this a few months ago...

    If you want to Tor, do not install the distro Tor packages unless you want to hide your DNS activity. Instead download the Tor browser Bundle, you'll be up an running in seconds.

    There multiple ways to try to anonymize your Internet activity...

    Web Proxies, aka SSL Proxies. Not just web browser, many services can run over HTTPS. I found offered services of all levels of quality.

    SOCKS Proxies. Many web apps including web browsers support SOCKS. If you consider this, make sure your apps support the version of SOCKS offered.

    Both of the above are application-specific so apps can be secured anonymously while other traffic can use your regular network connection.

    For best, fully protected anonymity, you"ll probably need a full VPN, not just specific apps.

    When choosing a service, I highly advise reading the fine print regarding privacy whether logs are kept and how long. You will also likely want to consider the country's laws regarding protection of privacy, eg the USA and its close allies allow and even compel giving up info without warrants and subpoena. Many countries don't have such laws and just do what they want, that's the reality of the world we live in.

    But, ultimately there is no way to <really> know if a VPN or Proxy service is a schill or intends to truly protect your privacy. It's very easy to setup a Service, the technology requirements are low and all you really need are a few machines, ample bandwidth, a few IP addresses andsome knowledge about VPNs and routing.

    Re Proxify, I tried it for a while as an advertised free service, paid only for specifying "exits" and extra services. But, after a couple weeks I was blocked, asking for a subscription. So, it's not really free.

    Although pricing can vary greatly, I've been fairly happy using a Swedish VPN service for under $8/mo that uses OpenVPN and PPTP technologies. The setup instructions are clear and I've used both integrated with Network Manager and from the CLI. Before signing up, you can request a 24hr test drive. If you're interested and can't find the service, PM me.
