HTTP over SSH
November 1, 2008 Leave a comment
It’s easier than you might think.
socks is actually built into openSSH, so its really a trivial matter to setup a local proxy.
$ ssh -D 12345 myuser@remote_ssh_server
will open up the port 12345 on localhost as a socks proxy and all your traffic can be specified to go through the tunnel and out of remote_ssh_server
For firefox 3, go to Edit->Prefrences->Advanced->Network->Settings
and set it to use a Manual Proxy, localhost, port 12345 socksv5
