Privoxy
  • Description: Privoxy Add-on for ReadyNAS sparc devices - a non-caching web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for enhancing privacy, modifying web page data and HTTP headers, controlling access, and removing ads and other obnoxious Internet junk. This add-on is based on Privoxy v3.0.16 (Latest stable release as of 19-Feb-2010)
  • Application Homepage: Privoxy Homepage
  • Requirements: RAIDiator 4.1.4+
  • Platform: NV/NV+/1100/Duo
  • Current Version:
    Privoxy Addon 1.02 (02/20/2010)
    • Upgraded to the latest stable release (v3.0.16 as of 02/19/2010). To access Privoxy's Web UI, point your browser to http://p.p
  • Installation Notes: none
  • Usage: After installation Privoxy will start listening to default port 8118. Then in your browser, change the proxy to your ReadyNAS' IP Address and put 8118 in the port number. Don't forget to also add your ReadyNAS' IP address to the exceptions so your browser won't use the proxy when you're using Frontview.
    If you have the Squid Add-on installed you can chain Squid to Privoxy. The main benefit of chaining Squid and Privoxy is you decrease the resource usage of Privoxy because of the local web cache provided by Squid. What this gives you is increased web performance because of Squid's local web cache plus the ad and banner filtering feature of Privoxy. To chain Squid to Privoxy you just need to add the following line in Squid's configuration file (squid.conf)
    Code: Select all
    acl ftpproto proto FTP
    cache_peer localhost parent 8118 0 no-query no-digest
    always_direct allow ftpproto
    never_direct allow all

    The first line we assign a name for the FTP protocol. The second line assumes Privoxy is running on the same machine and listens to port 8118. If Privoxy is running on a different machine then change localhost to the IP Address of the machine running Privoxy. The third line we tell Squid to bypass Privoxy when FTP is used and the fourth line forces squid to forward all other requests to Privoxy.

From here you can toggle the enable-edit-actions option so that Privoxy's Web UI will let you modify the values in the config file. Please note that Privoxy's Web UI cannot be controlled separately by "ACLs" or HTTP authentication. Setting this value to 1 will allow you, and everybody who can access Privoxy, to modify its configuration for all users.

  • Old Versions:
    Privoxy Addon 1.01 (07/20/2009)
    • Added support to toggle the enable-edit-actions option so that Privoxy's Web UI will let you modify the values in the config file. To access Privoxy's Web UI, point your browser to http://p.p
    Privoxy Addon 1.0 (04/29/2009)
