NAME

filterproxy - a filtering web proxy  

SYNOPSIS

filterproxy [-h-k-f<file>-p<port>-n]
 

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the filterproxy command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

filterproxy is a perl script that acts as a generic web proxy. It is unique in that it allows "Modules" to be installed that can perform arbitrary transofrmations on HTML (or any other mime-type). Currently it filters ads, and compresses HTML content (for a 5-1 speedup on modems!) Configuration is done with web forms.  

OPTIONS

A summary of options is included below.
-h
Show summary of options.
-f <file>
Specify an alternate config file (default is /etc/filterproxy/filterproxy.conf)
-p <port>
Specify the port to which FilterProxy will bind (default is 8888)
-n
Do not daemonize: stay connected to the terminal from which it was started and print debugging messages.
