Polipo - proxy for funplug 0.5

Hi all,

I wanted a http proxy on my ch3snas and found Polipo to be the best for me. Polipo is lightweight, has a web interface for configuration and has enough options (set in /ffp/etc/polipo/config).

Install with

Code:

funplug -i polipo-1.0.4.tgz

you have to have funplug 0.5 by fonz installed.

Isn't that almost the same as tunneling the traffic through SSH?... except that you might not need to login.

True, but a proxy also does the DNS query.

A good proxy does a lot more than just forwarding requests. Polipo is also a cache, it can filter and probably more.

Re: Polipo - proxy for funplug 0.5

I am having some trouble with Polipo.

It works fine on my LAN, but when I uncomment this line (below) and add my local PC's static IP address it seems to break Polipo.

Code:

allowedClients = "127.0.0.1, 192.168.1.100"

Also, when I uncomment the IPv4 & IPv6 line (below) it seems to lock me out as well, so I stuck with IPv4 only, not sure if this sheds any light on the problem.

Code:

#proxyAddress = "::0"        # both IPv4 and IPv6
proxyAddress = "0.0.0.0"    # IPv4 only

Everything else is stock.

Any ideas? I can't seem to forward ports on my router for specific IPs, so obviously I need to figure this out to use it safely :-(


It's always the same... we talk and we complain... we struggle to maintain... we're gonna do that thing some day...

Re: Polipo - proxy for funplug 0.5

UPDATE:
It works when I loose the double quotes.

Code:

allowedClients = 192.168.1.100, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is my work IP
Odd, but it seems to work fine now. Can anyone else verify this?

It seems to be working right and I can now use Polipo on my DNS-323 at my home from my work PC.

Now, on to my ultimate goal, to figure out how to use 'tunnelAllowedPorts' correctly so I can IRC through Polipo. I am trying to do this so that I don't have dozens of script kiddies attacking my Windows servers at work.

That said, so far Polipo's port 8123 is the only port I have forwarded from the outside world to the DNS-323. Obviously I am using allowedClients, but is there any other security risks I may be unaware of with my Polipo n00bieness? :-P

UPDATE #2 :-P

Tunneling thru Polipo was a breeze. For IRC it was literally as simple as adding:

Code:

tunnelAllowedPorts = 113, 6667

Now, I am not sure that 113 is needed, it worked without it, but I didn't want to risk the ident server communicating directly with my work PC and possibly leaking my work IP, so I added it anyways. Maybe someone more knowledgeable than myself on this could clear it up or mention anything I might have overlooked here.
