Good Day, All:

I've done a bit of searching and came up with some answers from 2008ish, so I'm wondering if there's a better/newer way to go about things. I'm a big hardware guy, but I'm just getting into the meat of the server world.

Here's what I'm running: 13.10 server (headless) on an HP DL360 behind an IPCop/Firebox firewall. Connectivity is on cable with a static IP with port 80 available.
What I'd like to do: We spend a fair amount of time on the road for business, so I'd love to have my own private proxy server here at home that I could use to securely relay though when I'm in a hotel/hotspot/whatever. I realize I could do this with a VPN, but I'd prefer not to as more than a few places block that.

In a perfect world, I'd head to, where I'd be presented with just a blank page asking for a username and password. Upon logging in, I'd have access to a screen where I could type in whatever address I wanted to go to, and away I went, all over https.

I realize there's a ton of configuration to be done with this, along with hardening the server in the first place, but just program-wise, how would you approach this? I know there are about a dozen ways, but what does the community think would be the easiest/most hardened/fewest headaches method?

My thanks for the thoughts!
