SOCKS Proxy over SSH Tunnel

2010-11-03 by xpheas
If you are in a foreign network and want to secure up your HTTP traffic you can use an SSH Tunnel:
ssh user@host -NfD 8080

Configure Firefox:

SOCKS-Host: localhost
Port: 8080

To tunnel DNS lookups open about:config and change network.proxy.socks_remote_dns to true
