Released CGIProxy 2.1.16, which fixes some installation bugs. Also added Dutch localization. Please email me if you have any trouble installing CGIProxy, so I can fix any problems.
Released CGIProxy 2.1.15, which has many major bug fixes-- most popular
websites now work again! Database support is much less error-prone, and for ease
of installation SQLite is now the default database driver. Also making installation
easier is the new "
init" command, which installs the Perl modules
and creates the database (the "
install-modules" command is now
obsolete). The installation instructions have been
updated. As always, please report any bugs you find, so I can fix them!
Here's a more complete list of changes, including previous versions.
A list of past announcements is on the news page.
For your own safety, please read about security with CGIProxy.
Note that I'm once again welcoming bug reports and fixing those bugs, so please use the "Report a bug" link in the top form when you see errors. This is especially true of bugs when using any new features.
CGIProxy can run in four ways: as a CGI script, as a mod_perl script, as a FastCGI script, or with its own embedded secure HTTP server. Configurable options include text-only support (to save bandwidth), selective cookie and script removal, simple ad filtering, access restriction by server, custom encoding of target URLs and cookies, and more-- there are more than 70 options so far. It requires Perl 5.6.1 or later, but works better with a more recent version.

Of course, you must read the Legal Disclaimer before using this software.
Here's a demo (username "free", password "speech"), that lets you browse in the domains jmarshall.com, slashdot.org, whatismyip.com, and prismnet.com.
The original seed for this was a program I wrote for Rich Morin's article in the June 1996 issue of Unix Review.
Here are older versions, but don't use them anymore.
Visit the script's URL to start a browsing session. Once you've gotten a page through the proxy, everything it links to will automatically go through the proxy. You can bookmark pages you browse to, and your bookmarks will go through the proxy as they did the first time.
Censorship is a controversial subject, and some governments and companies have rules about what information you should have access to. If you use my software to bypass rules that have been imposed on you, you assume all legal risks and responsibilities involved. I'm providing the software as a demonstration and teaching tool, and for when legitimate access is needed to non-accessible servers. I won't encourage you to break any rules, because I would get in trouble if I did. I can't prevent you from using this software in illegitimate ways, but I believe the value of it as a teaching tool is far too great to let a few miscreants ruin it for everybody.
