    ssh tunnell


    I have been ssh tunneling, which works great.
    I can browse the internet by simply tunneling my traffic through my SSH server.

    the following command
    ssh -ND 9999 username at myserver.icantpostlinks
    is all I have type, and I can connect to a SOCKS proxy server on localhost:9999

    My problem is that I have an application that only supports HTTP proxies.
    Is there any way I can get it tunneling over the socks proxy?

    not that I'm aware of.

    You can get around this by installing / running squid, but that's the only way I know of.

    squid is an http proxy. It is used for an unimaginable number of things, but its basic configuration is as a web proxy using http. Depending on what distro you are on, it is easy to setup.

    If you are on Fedora, just run

    # yum -y install squid
    and
    # service squid start

    then point your http traffic to 3128, and it'll proxy it. you may have to get more fancy with it depending on the apps needs.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Check out stunnel. It will probably do what you want.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
