A while ago my AP U.S. History teacher tried to show us a site on the Ku Klux Klan and he was blocked by a filter from the school. I suggested he use a proxy but when he tried the IT guys had blocked every proxy you could find on google. That was when I decided I would make a proxy out of my xbox with gentoox.

Now my xbox will display a nice form to enter a URL when you connect to it

Here's what you do:

1. Install Gentoox (Make sure you enable Webmin)
2. Run magic and choose yes to emerge --sync
3. If you don't already have Apache2 enabled run:
/etc/init.d/apache2 start

to have apache start at startup:

rc-update add apache2 default

5. run nano /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
Somewhere at the end of the file type
ServerName localhost
Listen *:8080
4. if you don't have curl installed run emerge curl
5. after curl is done installing run: nano /etc/make.conf
edit the USE= line to include "curl curlwrappers"
6. run emerge php
7. download glype (
8. unpack glype
9. go into webmin under servers go apache
10. select create virtual host tab
11. Leave everything as it is accept:
-Document Root: select the "upload" folder where you unpacked glype
-Server Name: select the box and type "Proxy" (it's just nice to have that)
Click Create Now
12. Run /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
13. Run /etc/init.d/apache2 start


to test go in a browser and go to xbox_ip:8080

(i can't put the protocol which if you were born without a brain-stem would be "h t t p : / /" without the spaces and would go before xbox_ip:8080 (my account isn't old enough)

if it doesn't work, well you tried anyway
