    I am thinking about setting up a local HTTP web server with something and HTTP proxy to share my VPN connection easily. But to be honest I am also kinda lazy. Ok, alot.
    Maybe NGINX for web server and Privoxy for the proxy server. Or tinyproxy. I don’t know to be honest. When I’ll have too much extra time at school I can look into that.

    Anyway, there’s also ffmpeg. Pretty useful.
    And since you can run GUI in it, noaa-apt for decoding APT imagery from the last NOAA satellites still broadcasting APT at 137MHz. (NOAA-15, 18 and 19. NOAA-15 currently has broken AVHRR scan motor, but it’s not the first time.)

      Hi, could you explain a bit more about how you’re planning to share your VPN connection with a proxy? Interested to know how the networking will work. Thanks!

        I mean, just run the proxy server on the phone. Then the traffic simply goes through VPN. Currently I just use this app, but I want to do it properly.

          Ah, I see. Is this for devices that can connect to a proxy but can’t connect to a VPN?

          I suppose one could share their Wi-Fi connection using this too

            Also. I use it with school computers like that.
            But also to go around VPN device limit. For example, I use free Proton VPN which limits me to 1 connection at a time. And that 1 device can be the device running proxy server, and now I increased the limits.
