Starting proxy server external ip ?



  • Hi,

    What are packages that i have to install to start a proxy server running on pfsense 2.0.1 based on pc platform ?
    I want to use external ip or a dynamic dns as proxy server in internet explorer on port 21 where i want to bypass local firewall  !
    I don't want this proxy server on lan interface i want to work for 'outside/external'.
    Is this possible ? if someone know please help with some indications and settings for proxy server to run as i mentioned above with external ip.

    Thanks !



  • Just install any proxy server (HAVP,squid) on pfsense and configure it to listen on port 21.

    To restrict it to your ip, create a firewall rule to allow only your ip.

    Depending on how your current firewall filter port 21, you will get a ftp proxy.



  • firewall rule from wan is to allow (pass) everything
    ''create a firewall rule to allow only your ip'' what do you mean by this ? my exterior ip

    ''create a firewall rule to allow only your ip'' what do you mean by this ? my exterior ip

    If you do not want to be blacklisted as a open proxy, you need to close your firewall rules to allow only you to connect to it.

    Yes.

    Enter each unrestricted IP address on a new line that is not to be filtered out by the other access control directives set in this page.
