I’m based in the UK and would like to proxy my browser traffic through a CentOS server I have set up in the US. From what I’ve gathered through Google if I execute a command like this on my server:
ssh -C2qTnN -D 8080 username@remote_host
It will set up a SSH tunnel on my server for
127.0.0.1:8080 pointing to
username@remote_host. But how do I set up a basic proxy (I don’t need any encryption) so I can plonk in an
ip:port into my web browsers proxy settings and proxy through my remote server when browsing the internet?
You already did set up the proxy! The
-D option causes sshd to run a local SOCKS proxy on the specified port. Now all that remains is for you to configure your browser to use it.
