If you have a unix web server ( ex. Ubuntu ), you can use it as a proxy for surfing internet.
Here is the process ,
- Open Terminal and type
ssh -4 -D 3128 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Web server shell will popup. If it says “unable to bind spcified port, change the port number( i.e 3128 ) to something else.
- After that in your firefox/internet explorer proxy settings, use
SOCKS5 Proxy : 127.0.0.1 with
Port : 3128 ( or your specified one, while connection )
- For windows, you need to download ssh client software “putty” or Install any bash/shell for using ssh command to connect to the server
- After Connecting with server using putty/bash follow the same process above mentioned for ubuntu/mac os
