We have a HTTP/HTTPS proxy that we need to use by default, call it XY.

But: I need to push my traffic through Privoxy (on my local PC) before handing the web traffic to XY. How to do this? I can install Privoxy and I know the address/port of XY, but how to configure Privoxy to use XY?


What you're looking for is the upstream/parent/forward server. Just check the privoxy configuration. It's straightforward.

  • vi /etc/privoxy/config # append this: forward / proxy.address.com:8080 – LanceBaynes Sep 17 '11 at 10:00
