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.

Grab the source for example from ftp://ftp.oit.unc.edu/pub/Linux/system/network/daemons/redir-2.2.tar.gz and build it. Then you can use redir either from inetd or from commandline.

In commandline say:
redir --lport=8000 --cport=8080 --caddr=real.proxy.com &
and you're done.

I should warn you, you'll probably want to use firewalling to prevent everyone from accessing the port opened by redir.

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
