How time flies...

I've been keeping busy with my project over the last month so not too much tickin' over here per se. The trick of the day is to use SSH for a SOCKS(5) proxy as per the comments here. The article is about using PuTTY to SSH to a server and open an encrypted proxy connection. As the peanut gallery says, this is even easier with ssh:

ssh -D1080

There, done. Tell your browser you have a SOCKS proxy at localhost:1080 and there you go! Right?

Well apparently I'm missing something cause it ain't working yet. I'll get there though, that's my goal. I'll get there...

/me mutters something about browsers
