Socks Proxy setup using SSH
To use a remote server as a Socks proxy, do the following:
- ssh -N -D 8080 user@remote_server (once you execute this, the prompt won't be returned, that's fine)
- Configure your browser to use a Socks Proxy with the following information:
IP: localhostPORT: 8080
- To stop the proxy, just stop the ssh session with Ctrl-C.
