    help needed for Proxy configuration

    I am having troubles with my ISP. because of a alleged abuse of my server they have blocked port 80 for outgoing traffic.
    The problem is that I have to update my software/programs running on that server, and install new software in order to make sure the box is completely secure.

    They offered me a solution that I can get the updates (or use wget or wathever) if I implement a proxy server for all outgoing http request.

    The told me that I should use proxy.server.com on port 8080 for that (of course with other URL).

    How do I set that up?

    Of course you can use a proxy, you can try this list http://www.checker.freeproxy.ru/chec...ed_proxies.php

    If you stuck to your ISP and you don't want to move out, buy a VPN and route outgoing traffic via VPN.
