Using SSH as a SOCKS proxy

SSH can function as a SOCKS proxy with the following command:

ssh -D 5555 -q -C -N shell.jasonmurray.org

In the following examples, I used SwitchyOmega as the plugin to change the proxy settings.

Configure the browser with the proxy:

Chrome Proxy

AutoProxy is enabled for specific sites, otherwise bypass the proxy and fetch directly:

Chrome SwitchyOmega AutoProxy
