[Updated 2016/04/09] I had to use this today to build on Debian 8.3 for 2 different boxes. So, making minor changes (url to git proxy, and where you build from) to make sure this works now.
I have been looking into WANProxy for a while now, but never successfully got it to build… I have been more successfull reciently, so here is what you need to do.
** NOTE **: I built this on Ubuntu 12.04, so these are the tips for that… Not sure about other Distros… ** Second NOTE ** : I am using the Digows GitHub Repo for downloads… There is also the WANProxy SVN Server and their official downloads page.
sudo apt-get install build-essential git-core libssl-dev uuid-dev git clone https://github.com/wanproxy/wanproxy.git cd wanproxy/programs/wanproxy make
Note -: git-core is needed to checkout code, build-essentails gives you your essential build utils, and the -dev files are needed for the build *- NOTE -: I have tried it on a couple VMs and they take about 5 min to build… If you are building on Physical hardware, it may be faster. Also, as a general note, if you are building with multiple processors, try add the -jX option, where x is your CPU count +1. for example, make -j5 if you have CPUs or Cores. or make -j17 if you have 16 cores…
cp wanproxy ~/local/bin
~~Now, this is, so far, as far as i have gotten… but given its building, and its further than I was a few weeks back, i though i would post incase i can help someone else… ~~
** UPDATE ** I have successfully managed to get a WANProxy working. The way i have it setup is as follows: ** UPDATE 2016 ** as part of my series on getting double internet speed, I am back looking at WANProxy… more on that later..
Works grand so far. no idea yet if its “faster” but its working, which is a start…
