    Hi everyone. I live in Iran where access to sites like Youtube and Spotify are forbidden. So I have to use things like VPNs and proxy servers and all those stuff in order to be able to access those sites. but since Playstation 4 doesn't have the VPN option, I'm only left with only one option. proxy server!
    So I ordered a VPS located in USA and installed ubuntu 16.04 on it. I also installed "squid proxy server" software. I'm actually not that familiar with the config file and don't know where and what exactly is causing the problem. The problem is whenever I open Spotify or Youtube app from my ps4, it will not connect even though I am connected to my proxy server. So I guess there must be a problem with the proxy server ITSELF, connecting to the spotify IPs. from an article on spotify community, they have mentioned that spotify requires the clients (my proxy server in my case) to allow connections from and on port 4070.
    So my question is: What is the correct way of adding these settings to my squid.conf file?

    Howdy and welcome. May want to re-read the rules page, as we do not support bypassing country restrictions. As a result, I'm closing this out.
