    I am trying to figure out how to setup a proxy server on OS 10.4. Basically, I want to browse the web from work, but using my mini as the proxy server. I've been searching for hours and have come up with basically nothing. Anyone else know how to do this? Thanks!

    You said you wanted a proxy server for Mac OS X.
    There's a list of searched "proxy", of which a couple are proxy servers for Mac OS X.

    I've gone through that list, tried a few. None are actually proxy servers. Most are proxy clients that you run whilst browsing web sites. Not the same thing. But I do thank you for providing the link!!! :)

    You could always just set up Apache to do it. It's free.

    However, as I'm sure you know, the mere fact that you're using an external proxy server won't prevent your employer from seeing what you're looking at.

    Uhh..

    Privoxy is a proxy server, not a client.
    BFilter is a proxy server, not a client.
    Charles is a proxy server, not a client.
    NetSentry is a proxy server, not a client.
    Machilles is a proxy server, not a client.
    NetShade is a proxy server, not a client.

    "squid" has got to be the most used proxy server. But Apache will act as a proxy server and it comes with every Mac OSX system and may already be installed on you system. All that is left is to configure it.

    I use squid as a advertismant filter and web cache. Squid is very mature and robust and its been arounf in common use for year and years. See http://www.squid-cache.org/ and use google to find ports of squid to Mac OS.

    But like I said Apache will do the job and at the same time serve web pages too.
