The BindSame feature is very useful and easy to use(While squid needs to add many tcp_outgoing_address lines for all interfaces)!

Can you add another feature "BindRandom"?
If enabled, tinyproxy will bind the outgoing connection to a random interface(eth0, eth1, eth2, eth3, ....).

What would be the benefit?
And would that be random each time or once?

I would like this feature too !

My personal benefit would be this kind of pattern:
Let's imagine i use one instance of tinyproxy, binded on a /24 or more IP address (aka iface). On my project i need to scrap Internet, i would love to use as proxy in curl and tinyproxy totally randomize outgoing interface. That may prevent the scrapper being banned.

Obviously i can use "BindSame yes" and my application could hold the whole IP address list, but I find it easier to maintain if it is the daemon that manages it.

Let me know,
Thank you :)

  1. I have many ADSL connections(more than 100) , the IP address of each is changing aperiodically. With"BindRandom" i can ignore that.
  2. Choise random outgoing address for each new request.

I too would love this feature. Having tinyproxy behave as a "proxy gateway" (sorting through many outgoing interfaces, randomizing my traffic) would be amazing.

imo this is outside the scope of tinyproxy functionality, but with the new upstream proxy capabilities you could just redirect requests to a very simple socks5 proxy to shuffle the outgoing requests. for example there is a socks5 server in 400 lines and i guess it'd be much easier to add this functionality to something like that, or some python script.
