    SSH Socks (proxy) server for tunneling

    Hi there,

    I have my own VPS with currently debian on it (and I can change it so something else if needed).

    Anyway, I want to create a ssh socks server so I can tunnel my programs (using ProxyCap (Windows)) to the server. I'd like to have authentication aswell. I've found 2 programs for ssh servers: dante and openssh server.

    I don't have really linux experience though. So is there anyone here who can give me a decent tutorial or can help me in any way with this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Ok, so I have squid proxy up and running right now. I can use my browser to connect to it, but how can i use a proxifier (like Proxycap) to tunnel programs (MSN messenger) through it?

    The easiest way to tunnel is using an ssh client (putty) and adjust few
    settings on your browser. Follow the steps.

    Connect your server via putty
    click on connection tab on putty -> tunnels
    select dynamic in the source port type an port number you like ie(1234)
    click add -> apply
    Go to your browser (Mozilla) -> tools->options->network-> settings
    select manual proxy configuration
    Socks HOST -> port 1234
    choose SOCKSv5
    NO proxy for ->localhost,

    Apply -> ok you are done. Your browser is tunneled/ http tunneling no software required

    install sox or use tor clients. This I think be more simple.

    Or install and make normal openvpn connection
