I am on a network where outgoing port 8080 is blocked on most machines (i.e. I cannot access services on port 8080).
Some of the machines on the network however do not have this restriction.
I would like to run a proxy on an unrestricted machine and forward outgoing requests to 8080 via that proxy.
I do not have root access on any of these machines.
I have looked at squid, which compiles fine on the machine I want to run the proxy on, but as it is a service I do not think I can run it effectively without root access.
I have also experimented with ssh port forwarding, but as there is no service running on the unrestricted machine I don't think ssh will solve my problem.
If there is some other way to achieve this objective I am open to that too.
