how to tunnel ssh connection

First step is getting an ssh client.

I prefer Putty, now to configure it;

1. Set the host to what you are tunneling to (ssh host)
2. Then under connection>SSH>Tunnels set the source port to 1080 (or anything over 1024) and check off dynamic, and open the connection.
3. Log in, when you have a connection you can proceed.

Second step is to set the browser.

I prefer firefox; under tools>options>advanced>network>settings choose Manual Proxy configuration and add localhost to SOCKS and type the port you used (1080) next to it.

click OK, and to test you have a good connection use whatismyip.org and see if you have a different IP then yours by switching the proxy off and testing further.
