This free VPN based proxy uses encryption and multiple servers to address one of the major concerns of Internet users.
*** Anonymity ***
Another goal is to demonstrate that I can build virtual appliance systems capable of supporting thousands of users securely,
in a scalable cloud based, virtual environment.
***** The Free Proxy for Internet connectivity uses Tor with OpenVPN so you can connect with SOCKS 4a or SOCKS 5 on TCP port 9050 only.*****
***** A Private CITADEL BBS collaboration server is available and only accessible on one of our Tor Onion Sites. *****
( Over 20,000 users as of August 2014 )
The entire Private CITADEL BBS collaboration server is DELETED and RE-CREATED monthly or as needed to protect its users!
( The Maximum Lifespan of all our servers will be 30 days starting January 1, 2013.)
***** VPN User Activity ***** ( over 10,000 Active VPN Sessions in use as of August 2014 )
The MagusNet Anonymous Public Proxy a.k.a (Torduckin)
We are actively seeking financial Donations, Grants, and Philanthropic sources to pay for
bandwidth and servers to continuously build out as a fully free globally distributed service.
Donations of any kind ( especially hardware ) are always welcome.
If you have a working 64bit X86 Server you are willing to donate, get in touch with me :)
Why do I do it?
I created and ran the original MagusNet Anonymous Public Proxy (based on DeleGate) starting in 1997 and
decided to come back with a new MagusNet Anonymous Public Proxy (Torduckin) in 2011 to do something better
based on my experience in Information Security and development of innovative ways of deploying Information
and Communications Technology (ICT).
I want to be able to give globally by promoting the following:
- Freedom of Opinion and Expression beyond National Borders
- Anonymity and Privacy to Communicate Freely
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights:
"Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority...It thus exemplifies the purpose behind the
Bill of Rights, and of the First Amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation
and their ideas from suppression at the hand of an intolerant society." - Justice Stevens, U.S. Supreme Court

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE PAGE BEFORE USING THE PROXY.
IT'S LONG BUT THERE IS A LOT OF IMPORTANT
INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS PAGE.
USE POLICY LAST UPDATED: May 1, 2011 08:00 EST
Use of the service implies acceptance of this:
MagusNet LLC. Acceptable Use Policy.
In some cases you may want to go to a WWW site and have it appear that
you are coming from somewhere else.
The OpenVPN Software used is set up for encrypting the session with
2048 bit SSL for even more security between you
and this site while you browse
the WWW anonymously and safely.
This is also a good way to thwart attempts to filter WWW content by
geographic location, hosts, domains, or software packages.
As with any product which claims to make you anonymous, the user must
rely on the operator. In this case MagusNet, LLC.
I ask for donations and sell accounts because my budget for bandwidth is not infinite
and this is on an internal testing system so I have to raise funds to keep this going.
Can The MagusNet Anonymous Public Proxy (Torduckin) be trusted?
All proxy servers are designed to create system logs of activities and transactions.
There is not a 100% guarantee of privacy since MagusNet, LLC. could be reconfigured to
have access to these logs.
Until such time as a reason for having to produce or store the proxy logs arises,
the logs for the MagusNet Anonymous Public Proxy are automatically securely wiped at minimum on an hourly basis
and at maximum every 24 hours.
There is no use for any system logs except to examine usage statistics and bandwidth abuses.
Logging of source and/or destination IP addresses is never done in any of our servers for any reason
and that policy is in place to preserve and protect privacy and anonymity.
Should that policy ever change, the proxy will be shut down and a note made
of it here before determining the feasibility of resuming service.
Systematic abuses over time will eventually cause this service to be changed over to a pure login/password format or a fee only service.
There may be times that this service is very slow or unavailable.
Because of tests involving security and coding, sometimes you may
have to submit a URL more than once before it works properly and
This service is built for security, not speed!
This is our proxy test platform so do not be surprised if
the connection drops out or weird things happen from time to time.
PUBLIC PROXY ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
You agree not to use the service for any illegal purposes
or for the transmission of material that is unlawful,
harassing, libelous, invasive of another's privacy,
abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene,
tortious, or otherwise objectionable, or that infringes or may
infringe the intellectual property or other rights of another.
Abuse of this service includes but is not limited to:
Sending Unsolicited Bulk/Commercial Email [SPAM].
Email Address Harvesting from WWW pages.
Unsolicited Commercial Postings to WWW Boards.
Use of (BitTorrent, PointCast,Real Channels,Netcaster,etc.),
or tools used to to index,download, or mirror remote sites
with any program,spider,robot,etc., and use up limited bandwidth.

Disruption or Denial of Service in Chat Rooms or other areas.
