Make Your Own Socks 5 Proxy With SSH Tunnel

On Jan 17, 2010 0 comments

We know that socks 5 proxy is very good and anonymous. Now you can make your socks 5 proxy with the help of ssh. You can make it by tunneling connection through your remote computer on a network or internet with ssh.

You just need this command on terminal :

$ ssh -D port user@remote_computer

example :

$ ssh -D 1234 john@

-D option here is for tunneling, and port is the port you are using to connect to your remote computer. I use port 1234 here on example.

To use this socks proxy, for example on a browser you need to fill the socks proxy address with "localhost" and port 1234, and choose socks 5 proxy.
