When I was in college, we used to have squid proxy server. Number of concurrent connection were limited and so is the bandwidth usage. Though, when anybody internet get ban by network admin, we share internet from other system in the lan using this free software call CcProxy. Though, it’s free for 3 users but it was good enough to solve our problem.
Ccproxy is internet sharing tool. Ccproxy lets you create proxy server on your system easily without much effort. The installation of Ccproxy and configuring is very easy. Download and install the ccproxy from the link given below.
How to configure CCproxy?
Ccproxy doesn’t need any configuration apart from, if you want to change the default port number. Once installed click on options and check the port settings , you can change the port numbers according to your wish. Share your I.P. and port number to your friend with whom you want to share internet over LAN.
By default the port number is 808. Your friend need to configure his Internet proxy settings to connect to your system by putting up your IP and Port number.
Another useful feature of this software is to convert HTTP connection into Socks4 or Socks5 connection. Specially, torrents and Socks proxy were blocked by default. But when we use Socks4 proxy settings in torrent client, it works. All you need to do is set up ccProxy as shown in above image and configure your torrent software, messenger socks settings to use ccProxy settings.
The software is easy to configure and use. The free version allows 3 connection at one go and for unlimited time.
Do let us know if you have tried any other software which let you share net with other people in your LAN?
