374 14

P-WebProxy (Privoxy) is yet another fantastic tunneling software that helps unblocking restriction and breaking through firewalls…its a very unique software that requires little tweaking but yet work speedily especially when it comes to downloading…because this is what i use it for with my Internet Download Manager… and the download speed is quite incredible.

According to wikipedia, Privoxy is a non-caching Web proxy with filtering capabilities for enhancing privacy, modifying web page data and HTTP headers before the page is rendered by the browser. Privoxy is a “privacy enhancing proxy”, filtering Web pages and removing advertisements. Privoxy can be customized by users, for both stand-alone systems and multi-user networks.

Privoxy is based on the Internet Junkbuster and is released under the GNU General Public License. It runs on GNU/Linux, OpenWRT, Windows, Mac OS X, OS/2, AmigaOS, BeOS, and most flavors of Unix. Almost any Web browser can use it. The software is hosted at SourceForge.

Privoxy is frequently used in combination with Tor or the Vidalia project or Squid and can be used to bypass Internet censorship.

This Software had been running on MTN Nigeria for Months now on The free address but recently got blocked that all activity going through that URL leads to xxx.yyy.zzz which could be so annoying especially when you intend checking or downloading something important.

Now The way this software runs is simple… as the user you are only expected to extract your P-WebProxy (Privoxy) files into a folder… then click on the (P) icon which symbolizes(Privoxy), After the click an empty box will show up, which is the privoxy box, then minimize the box… and you will see the blue icon at Task bar.

Now set all your applications to

port: 8118

Thats it….You are free to surf.

In case you free site got blocked and you got a new free site….here is how to tweak the privoxy configuration.
Right click on the “Match-all.action” file then open it with any editor like notepad

then change the “” to working free servers like “” save then start your privoxy normally.
