Installation: use "1-click" installer to install Privoxy
OpenSuSe 11.1 - here
OpenSuSe 11.0 - here
Having installed privoxy, we need to edit the config file and make some small changes. To edit, run: vi /etc/privoxy/config
You can choose to read the ToC and the Introduction (and of course the descriptions of each option), but if you want to skip that and get to a working proxy, search for the word "listen-address" in the cofig file and set your local ip address and port on which privoxy server will listen.
(Your ip will most likely be different). This is the IP address of the ethernet port the computer is running on. This can also be loopback (127.0.0.1) if you dont want to share your advert freeing proxy goodness :). The other part (after the ":") is the port number to listen on - this can be almost anything, but unless you need it moved, its probably best to leave it where it is.
Thats our big change here! save and exit the editor your using, then restart the daemon, and your finished: # /etc/init.d/privoxy restart
You should now have a filtering proxy running on the IP and port you just specified. If you want Firefox or some other browser to run through it, you simply change the settings in the browsers configuration.
Open the browser, click Edit -> Preferences. Click the 'connection settings' button, and click on 'manual proxy configuration'. In the top field add the following (as shown in the figure)
