How to browse using SSH tunnel


Small command to browse using a remote server where you have SSH access, useful to try some blocked websites due to location. This will save some minutes next time i need to do it again

ssh -D 8080 remote-host

And later change the SOCKS proxy of your browser to port 8080. The traffic will go through this remote server.

If you dont have a remote server you can create one in www.digitalocean.com
