privoxy - polipo via tinc (vpn)

The last couple days i was intrigued to test a HTTP Proxy via a VPN solution.
The reasons are a. security & b. free time!

I use privoxy for filtering & black-listing with polipo for caching and all of that through a tinc-vpn server!

papaki is just the test i need, cause (lets face it) it has a lot of files in first page (ugly design).

A. Without any Proxy or VPN


[ebal@mylaptop tmp]€ wget -nv -d -p http://www.papaki.gr/

FINISHED --2012-02-08 20:58:06--
Total wall clock time: 5,0s
Downloaded: 62 files, 544K in 0,8s (684 KB/s)

Okei, first impressions: 62 files for first page in 5 seconds.

B. With Proxy via VPN (best compression - not fast)

(privoxy-polipo via tinc with lzo compression)


[ebal@mylaptop tmp]€ wget -nv -d -p http://www.papaki.gr/

FINISHED --2012-02-08 21:00:09--
Total wall clock time: 19s
Downloaded: 40 files, 488K in 3,5s (141 KB/s)

Impressions: Speed is …. is slow! Okei but server is in Uk so …
But it’s 22 files less !

C. Proxy via VPN with less compression (for speed)


FINISHED --2012-02-08 21:04:39--
Total wall clock time: 20s
Downloaded: 40 files, 488K in 2,8s (176 KB/s)

D. Proxy via VPN with medium compression


FINISHED --2012-02-08 21:07:25--
Total wall clock time: 20s
Downloaded: 40 files, 488K in 4,5s (109 KB/s)

It seems that i need to test more and more to find the best effort solution.
I’ll try in a couple days with a greek (local) server to report stats.
