    URL anonymizer software


    Are there any open source projects for providing "anonymizer" type
    surfing services? Where you enter a specific URL and surf through
    that so your URL destinations are locally "hidden" and you're going
    through port 80 (not a proxy server, per say, like Squid).

    Thanks!

    Tor. "The Onion Router" - use it with Privoxy.

    Be advised though that any such software will slow down the machine's access quite considerably, and they are only valid for port 80.

    If you are looking for more complete solutions, then Relakks VPN may be your best bet.

    Sorry, but I'm not looking for an anonymizer/proxy service,
    I'm looking for the actual software so I can setup my own.

    I've got Squid for proxies but I'm interested in adding a port
    80 url anonymizer for clients to sneak through web proxies.

    You need hosts to provide anonymity through, therefore you cannot simply just "set up your own".

    Use Tor

    Per my original message, I'm looking for an "anonymizer" type
    software that hides URLs from local proxies. That's my goal, I'm
    not worried about the anonymous aspect, but anonymizer type
    services seem to use the "URL hiding" technology that I desire.

    A URL must be understood by the sending machine and the receiving machine, therefore either both machines have to use the same encoding to transfer data (as is done with SSL - although that does not encrypt the url, only the traffic sent between the hosts), or there has to be intermediate points at which the receiving machine connects with an encrypted URL and that machine then decrypts the URL to contact the remote machine.

    This is basically using some form of VPN - and the VPN machine would be the one that connects unencrypted to the remote machine.
