Quick and secure leeching

Warning: This guide is very out of date.

Here's a guide to making browsing on iPhone faster and more secure. It's not easy, and if you're afraid of compiling software or configuring routers, prepare to spend entire evening googling error messages ;)

  1. Set up a L2TP VPN — this will encrypt and tunnel all trafic through your home Mac. Thanks to that you can leech open Wi-Fi hotspot without worrying who's reading your e-mail.
  2. Combine that with Ziproxy to gzip all HTML/JS/CSS and recompress images. Saves a lot of bandwidth, which is a blessing on EDGE.
  3. And top that with Privoxy which is a “AdBlock” for iPhone.
