    File size and other security steps

    I've just installed Glype v1.1 on my g/f's first proxy.

    What should I set the file size at so that downloaders don't abuse my host account?

    What other settings does everyone else automatically set to reduce bandwidth or CPU usage?

    I run a rather high amount but a lot of people run 3-5 megabytes

    3 megabytes = 3145728 bytes
    4 megabytes = 4194304 bytes
    5 megabytes = 5242880 bytes

    It all depends on what you can spare

    might want to start with

    0.5 megabytes = 524288 bytes enough to watch youtube but not so much that warez can be downloaded.

    I think with glype you can just enter the 5 value instead of 5242880 bytes. I know with PhProxy you need to enter the byte value. I've been going with 5mb so far, and I've seen 8gig of bandwidth go down the drain since the start of the month.

    Yeah, Glype actually does accept just 5, and I'm assuming if you wanted 500kb you'd have to enter 0.5 in the text box, but I just set it to 1.

    Yeah thought so,

    The thing with Glype is it seems to have far less 'free' templates knocking around when compared with PhProxy. So it can be difficult trying to make sure each proxy is running a different template.

    Yes, that's true.. but you're allowed to use the same template on each proxy, just change the colors everytime

    I'm going to knock out a few free themes for Glype, so give me a week or so and there will be another 5 or 6 themes available.

    Might be a stupid question:

    What does the bandwidth limit? Is the amount information each person can view using your proxy? Or is a file download issue?

    The amount that a unique IP can download with your proxy in total..
    But I can be wrong, but I don't think so

    That would suck, cause people would go away when thier limit is done, and never come back
