    If remote host to be used as Proxy is running Windows, there is no good tinyproxy port for Windows though there is a github project claiming fakely a port of TinyProxy.
    However there is a freeware Windows Proxy software called ProxyI by AnalogX.AnalogX Proxy is a small and simple server that allows any other machine on your local network to route its requests through a central machine.

    To use Proxyi run it on the machine with the internet connection, configure the other machines to use a proxy (it’s very easy, there’s a detailed description in the readme), and voila! You’re surfing the web from any other machine on your network! Supports HTTP (web), HTTPS (secure web), POP3 (receive mail), SMTP (send mail), NNTP (newsgroups), FTP (file transfer), and Socks4/4a and partial Socks5 (no UDP) protocols! It works great with Internet Explorer, Netscape, AOL, AOL Instant Messenger, Microsoft Messenger, and many more!

    It was often that many crackers used static compiled tinyproxy renamed under some other common unix / linux process name like /usr/sbin/”apache2 ” and to run it and use the remote server secretly as a proxy 🙂

    Your pasted description says tinyproxy is non-caching, which is correct.
