I have a normal home internet connection. I would like to be able to run some kind of program or code (in conjunction with setting up my router properly) such that my computer can become a proxy server.
To clarify, I'd like to be able to connect to my home internet IP from anywhere, by using an http proxy. So wherever I am, I can simply input my proxy address and password into the browser settings for http proxies, and all my traffic would rout through my home internet.
I don't want to VPN or remote desktop into my home computer. I have used proxy services in the past and they work alright, but I'd much prefer to have my own personalized proxy which is not being shared by other users. How would I go about doing this? Is there some software or coding instructions to turn a computer/router into a proxy which can be accessed elsewhere?
I use windows but could potentially use linux if it the only option for this sort of thing. Thanks
