Privoxy is available in repositories for Debian and Ubuntu. This means you can install it from PPM and with APT.
Privoxy is a piece of software which acts as a non-caching web proxy. A web proxy is a service that web browsers can use instead of connecting to web servers directly. Even though web browsers nowadays have built-in features similar to privoxy, the proxy is a good choice if you use multiple browsers, or have a LAN with multiple computers since Privoxy can run as a server application. This way all the configuration is in one place, and you don't have to maintain a similar configuration for possibly many browsers or users.

useful commands :
sudo systemctl status privoxy
netstat -lntup (what ports are in a listening state)
traceroute www.google.com (all intermediary nodes can monitor our packets being forwarded through the Internet.) The use of Tor stops monitoring in its tracks. Last edited by labbe5 on Sat 04 Aug 2018, 16:43; edited 6 times in total
