Install Tinyproxy on Centos 7

Tinyproxy is a light-weight HTTP/HTTPS proxy daemon for POSIX operating systems. Designed from the ground up to be fast and yet small, it is an ideal solution for use cases such as embedded deployments where a full featured HTTP proxy is required, but the system resources for a larger proxy are unavailable.

yum install -y epel-release
yum update -y
yum -y install tinyproxy
yum install vim -y
vim /etc/tinyproxy/tinyproxy.conf

Search for

Port 8888

Then Search for:


If you want to let it connect from anywhere then just comment it, but I’m not recommended, because it will allow other user connect in.

To test from the Allowed server to the TinyProxy Server

ssh [email protected] -L 1234:localhost:8888 -N
curl -I --proxy [email protected]:8888
