What would you like to do?
Transparent proxy for rewriting web pages to include The Hoff
Install twisted (pip install twisted) and PIL (pip install PIL), and run the script.
On your gateway, run the following commands:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i br0 -s ! -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o br0 -s -d -j SNAT --to
iptables -A FORWARD -s -d -i br0 -o br0 -p tcp --dport 8080 -j ACCEPT
Substitute for the computer running the proxy.

Twisted was new to me, useful! is pure Python voodoo.

Ah, I had completely missed .fit(). Thanks for the tip, @madr. :)
