Don’t you hate it when those computers at the library block you from viewing your email? Ever get stuck working on a computer that has important sites blocked by a bad firewall? Worried that other potentially dangerous websites might log your IP? Well, I have the answer, finally; Peacefire.org.
Peacefire.org has a newsletter service that produces a new proxy website, or a website that allows you to browse other websites via a third party server. I use it whenever I want to visit a website that is suspicious, as a proxy hides your IP address (the third party server’s ip is used in place). It also allows browsing of websites that would normally be blocked, for whatever reason. A popular website to visit via proxys is facebook, seeing as it is blocked in public places due to the risk of people accidentally staying logged in. Myspace is also rather popular, as are most email websites.
Want to know how to set up your own proxy to run off your computer? The benefit of this is that you don’t have to deal with ads, and you don’t have to worry about the 3rd party server logging your private information. Read on to find out how to set one up.
