ssh proxy

SSH SOCKS5 proxy Route web traffic securely without a VPN using a SOCKS tunnel with ssh: $ ssh -D 8080 -f -C -q -N [email protected] -D 8080 tells ssh to launch a SOCKS server on port 8080 locally. -f Forks the process to the background. -C Compresses the data before sending it. -q Uses quiet mode. -N Tells SSH that no command will be sent once the tunnel is up.
