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

Best answer:

Answer by linuxiac
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.

  1. nothin_nyce1 says:

    use mpx (look it up in downloads section)
    second way (which is simpler, and only a SOCKS 5 server):
    use bouncer

    or you can download proxyplus
    google it.
