I want a proxy request redirection utility. Meaning:
I want a program which I can run on a network machine and use it as my proxy server and this program in turn just passes on my requests to our actual proxy server and bring me my files.
I need complete support for cookies and HTTP connect.

One easy solution is to use redir. Redir redirects all connections to a certain port to another machine. I've used it just like you describe, although it isn't that great a solution.

The other possible solution is to install squid proxy and set its cache very low etc, so it would basically act as a relay, not as a real proxy.

Please specify how to use "redir" and where will I get it ? Also, I don't want to use any full-fledged proxy server as I am more interested  ina light utiliyy that can work as a personal proxy redirect

Thanks feenix!
But redir actually tries to bind the ports (which we are not allowed here).
So I got a proxy server/filter called Muffin. It is written in java. I would like to have a C version (as it might be faster) but whatever, I am able to redirect! :)
If you know about a C version for muffin please tell me.
Is there any way to circumvent the error that redir is giving? It says server : bind: permission denied
