Question

Can I setup a droplet as a proxy server through which I could browse websites with a PAC file?

As you may know, when we are using a VPN for private browsing or firewall bypassing purposes, most of the cases are the everything goes through it, which is not so convenient sometimes. So, here comes the ‘PAC’. It can tell the browser whether to go through proxy or not.

Now I have a PAC file locates on my computer, and want to setup a droplet as a proxy server instead of using VPN or SSH methods. Is it possible to do that? What else should I do? Thanks.
