Simple acces to your HTTP(s) services via SSH and a SOCKS Proxy

I didn’t know this trick:

This blog entry describes how to use your normal SSH connection as a SOCKS proxy for web requests.
Just connect to the SSH server with the -D option on port 8080

ssh -D 8080 -p [port number] [username]@[IP address or hostname]

On Mac OS X just enable the socks proxy in the Advanced tab of your network/wifi card:
And enter as SOCKS proxy server 127.0.0.1, on port 8080
