Configure firefox to use proxy using ssh

leave a comment »

If you own some remote server access over ssh, then you can easily tunell all your http request over it. Under linux ssh tool is available by default, under windows its best to install Cygwin with ssh. After that all you have to do is issue following command:

$ ssh -ND localhost:8080 $USER@$REMOTE_SERVER

where localhost:8080 means that ssh will bind to localhost on port 8080, $USER is the name of your user account on remote server $REMOTE_SERVER.

after that you need to configure firefox to. Under firefox : enter Tools->Options->Advanced->Network->Settings, choose manual configuration and fill “Host Socks” with localhost:8080.

and thats all
