First of all, I don't know if what I want is possible, here it is:
I have a website on a vps server. It logs into another website for users of my site, that other site isn't mine.
I hope to be able to use extra IP's that my hosting provider has added on to the server, as SOCKS proxies, and, still use those extra IPs for logging into the other website.
Is this possible?
Apparently Squid is a program that can be intstalled on a server so you can have a proxy on the server, but can you also have a (already running, using LAMP stuff) website on that server?
Can the program Squid be used to make a SOCKS proxy? I saw a webpage that said you could but also said there were drawbacks, and I don't understand these things really.
I ordered some proxies from Squidproxies, but they aren't SOCKS proxies (so no good, and, the site that my site needs to login to for my site's users didn't like them, or, they were too slow, the logins have to be relatively fast), and I need SOCKS proxies, with the IP's of those SOCKS proxies also used for logging into another website , on the users' of my site's behalf.
If the SOCKS proxy IPs can't be also used to log in to the other website, I may be able to go with that, but it would be much much better if they could.
I figure this woudn't take more than $100 to set up if it is possible, but if a lit bit more, ok.
