I have a remote machine which needs to serve as a proxy server (http), aswell as an http server.

The part of the http server is taken care of and is working, but as far as setting proxy server - I've never done so.

Every where I looked, I see php based web proxies, I want to create a transparent proxy, to be used in, let's say firefox.

Any leads?

Squid is what you need. It runs even in Windows. – Adriano P Aug 17 '12 at 16:00

If for any reason squid does not match your needs, you might want to look at privoxy or tinyproxy. – user130370 Aug 17 '12 at 16:56
