Q&A: How to create a proxy on a server for bittorrent use at home?
Question by thewird: How to create a proxy on a server for bittorrent use at home?
My ISP has throttled my connection for Bittorrent. I have a few dedicated servers with plenty of bandwidth and I want to install a proxy on one where only I can connect to it and possibly encrypted as well. If possible I’d like only bittorrent to use this connection so it won’t affect games and other things. I notice the bittorrent client has a proxy setting so this is an option but I don’t know what I need to install on my server to make this work. Please help. Thank you.
I don’t want a new OS, just a simple way to make a proxy.
How do I create a bouncer? What program can I use? Thanks

proxy shift the port, using a spare old computer box, running a vastly superior firewall/router system http://ipcop.org
Run http://pclinuxos.com as it lets us reassign/shift ports, too.
