Tutorial: Tun xbox into proxy server!

Post by lateralus » Fri Jan 25, 2008 4:59 am

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 (glype.com)
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
