Setting instructions and hints to configure the Cina Proxy Server

In case you are unfamiliar with what a Proxy Server is, what it basically allows you to do is
share one internet connection with all the machines on your network. For
example: my main computer is the only one which has internet access, but I
have several other machines on my local network. By running the Proxy Server
on the machine that has the internet connection (my main machine), and setting
all the other machines to use a proxy, I can browse the web from them, just
like I can from the machine actually connected.

Quick Tour Cina Proxy Configuration


here you can find information about the RAS State,
the Ip-Address of your Server,
the LAN IP-address,
the users that are connected,
the online-time,
the socket load...

restart is to apply settings directly, that is also possible in tray menu (see above) that
important, if changes like new server addresses or port changes are made.

you can also sync your server with the internet atomic time (via http from supported for europe.

check the servers you want to use:
proxy is for browsers like ie, ns, opera (setting up some browsers),...
Http(s) at Port 3128

web-server is a smart local web-server (using with Norton Antivirus for distributing Patterns in your LAN)
Http at Port 80

socks 5-server is for icq(setting up icq),dconnect,gnucleus
Socks4/5 as Port 1080

smtp server is for sendmail, also fakemail possible if you know how it works...
the smtp relay must not have a account to send mails - the mails you send via this server
go directly to the mail-server of the recipients not via your account

SMTP at Port 25

ftp-gateway tunnels clients like wsftp or cuteftp
FTP at Port 2121

telnet-gateway tunnels telnet connections
Telnet at Port 23

set port for proxy (standard sets default port 3128), this port is set in your browsers, too.

ftp as anonymous is standard (checked or unchecked).

use Web-cache enables web-cache (no limit is set) - you can get rid of all wast by clicking in traymenu->delete cache.

ad-blocker level system wide sets the level how the proxy behaves on ads,banners... like junkbuster.

set port for build in web-server (standard 80)


set your provider information above in the add/edit dialog. Use any free ports at the server to be the gateway to your provider i.e. 10000/1 for GMX and 10010/11 for yahoo.

in your email client set the properties of your mail-account like you should do as the provider say, but in the server field POP3 and SMTP replace the above configured Inbox and Outbox with the Server-Address of the Proxy.
Afterwards you have to change the ports in the client to those you have given above i.e. 10000 and 10001 and so on.

set up your dynamic dyndns account
on connect the proxy will update your dynamic
ip-address. info if the update succeeds: see log\info.log (server)

with the cmd-plug-in you can start executables on startup of the proxy
or at every dial.

per shell has no control over the started executable (no termination)
asynchronous(Console Output) shows you the standard output from
the executbale (DOS-Box Output) tells you if the exe fails... and
closes the exe on end or the exe closes itself.
asynchrounous is the same as the one above, but without console input

check the days and the time in between the connection is valid.
check flatrate-support to auto-connect the whole time.

using the RAS-Manager is not so difficult. set up the ras-connection that has been made up with the internet connection wizard before and tell the proxy your account information. the proxy will then connect via the RAS-Connection to the Internet.

The RAS-Manager connects to the Internet by default, if a request is sent by a client in the valid period.
The RAS-Manager disconnects automatically if the time limit is set different to '0' and no network-connection to the server is made (admin excluded, SmartRemote Included).

disconnect foreign RAS-Connections - if the proxy detects, that no connection is valid - it disconnect hand made connections, too.

On termination disconnect RAS - if server is stopped normally disconnet ras, too.

Shutdown the Proxy machine (the PC itself) after a period if no connection is available. Power Saving could be used if you want turn on the Proxy machine by cmos-wake-up and shutdown it after the RAS-connection has expired.

Even more RAS-connections could be made from one to configure weekends and other times. For example you can choose one connection that
is set up to be valid every hour every day. by activating it or deactivating it you can influence the behavior of the proxy - feel free to select yours.
The connection Manager uses the first connection that fits to be valid, other following connections even if they are valid were not checked.

the smartremote client has to be activated for launching the smartremoteclient 'GoOnline'.

Use the standard port 2505.

Smart Remote enables for every user to configure the proxy for the special needs.

adblock-level, cookies, user agent delete
web-cache use, internet-use and connect

you can use this smart program if you want to manually dial a ras-connection. so long the smart-remote connection persists the proxy will not terminate the ras-connection except the connection is invalid at any moment.

use the range dialog to specify ip-addresses that has the right to access the proxy server and all its components.

also the is possible and may be needed for testing the web-server...

use the unlimited rights, if the proxy server is installed on a pc with integrated firewall, so that no one can access the proxy from the internet!

use limited right if you have no firewall or if you want to exclude some users.
therefore add the ip-addresses that are allowed to access the server and its components.

the check not to bound the server at can be used to use less ressources and if you do not need to
use the proxy from

the check not to bound the server is dangerous and should not be made if you are not behind a firewall.

bind server at interface is optional - the server will automatically been bound at the 1st interface on the server machine, but if this is not the right - you can give the server the ip to which it should be bound to.

set the new password, because the 'admin' should everybody know! don't forget to set the new password to the server login dialog after the settings has been saved.
