Using a VPS as a proxy with SSH

- Posted in Quick Tip by with comments

Just a quick tip, if you want to use a VPS as a proxy server through SSH then use this command (if your computer runs Linux)

ssh -D 12345 [email protected]

Replace 12345 with the port you want to use.

Then in Firefox, go to Preferences and add localhost as a Socks 5 proxy and the port 12345

I always test it first by going to Google and searching "What's my IP" to make sure it shows as the VPS's IP.

And you're done.
