Privoxy is a web proxy  with advanced filtering capabilities for 
protecting privacy, modifying web page data, managing cookies,
controlling access, and removing ads, banners, pop-ups and other
obnoxious Internet junk. Privoxy has a very flexible configuration
and can be customized to suit individual needs and tastes.
Privoxy has application for both stand-alone systems and multi-user

Before executing the script, you will need to create
a privoxy user and group. To do that, run the following commands:

groupadd -g 206 privoxy
useradd -u 206 -g 206 -c "Web Proxy" -d /dev/null -s /bin/false privoxy

To run privoxy at boot, the following code needs to
be added to /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.privoxy ]; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.privoxy start

Then add the following to /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown:

if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.privoxy ]; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.privoxy stop
