SSH web proxy through a firewall

del.icio.us Tags: , , , ,

Rather a buzz-word heavy title, but if you need to sort out decent web access from behind a firewall/proxy, use:

ssh -ND 9999 user@server.net

The web browser should then be configured to use the proxy "localhost:9999".

Great...!?
Still the info is missing on how and what to fill in at "user" and "server.net" or "example.com"?!
