How to surf over your home network from the job or the school

If you already have a SSH server runnning at home than the hard part is over. The easy part is to setup your browser and download Putty to your work or school computer. 1. Download putty from Putty

2. Now move the putty to the C:

3. Run command window (Tip: Windows flag + r than write CMD)

4. Write

putty -D 8080 -P 443 -ssh yourhomeIP

5. I run my ssh server on 443 address which is usually 22 so you can change this to 22 but I prefer 443 because many schools blocks port 22.

6. Now set up your browsers proxy to: port 8080. Only SOCKS host should be filled with ip and port other fields must be empty!
