How to Setup a Proxy for Firefox over an SSH Tunnel on Ubuntu

Last updated:

WIP ALERT This is a work in progress

If you need to have your browser access the internet with another IP and you have SSH access a remote server, you can tunnel your connection through that server.

It looks like this:

$ ssh -D 9999 -f -C -N <user>@<remoteserver> -p 22

Configure Firefox to use that proxy
