Learn how to set up and use a proxy server on Ubuntu Server with this comprehensive guide. Follow step-by-step instructions to configure residential proxy.

In this guide, we will walk you through the detailed process of setting up and using a proxy server on Ubuntu Server, specifically using the residential proxy. We'll cover installation, configuration, and testing to ensure everything works smoothly.


1. Installing the Proxy Server

We'll use Squid as the proxy server for this guide. Install Squid on Ubuntu Server by running the following commands:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install squid


2. Configuring Squid

Edit the Squid configuration file:

sudo nano /etc/squid/squid.conf

Find the section that starts with "http_port" and add the following line below it:

cache_peer parent 12321 0 login=username:password

Replace "username:password" with your login credentials.


3. Configuring Access Control

To restrict access to the proxy server, you can add the following lines to the Squid configuration file:

acl localnet src  # Define a local network
http_access allow localnet       # Allow access from the local network
http_access deny all             # Deny access to everyone else

Replace "" with your actual local network address range.


4. Restarting Squid

Restart the Squid service to apply the changes:

sudo systemctl restart squid


5. Configuring Client Devices

On your client devices, configure the proxy settings to use "" as the proxy server address and "12321" as the port number. Provide your username and password when prompted.


6. Testing the Proxy Server

To test if the proxy server is working, open a web browser on a client device configured to use the proxy and try accessing a website. If the website loads successfully, the proxy is working correctly.
