SOCKS proxy with firefox about:config and ssh

A simple socks proxy can be made as follows

First, open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar

change the following items

network.proxy.socks localhost
network.proxy.socks_port 4321

network.proxy.type 1
network.proxy.socks_remote_dns true

ssh to your favorite machine with the -D flag
i.e.

ssh -D 4321 root@myserver.com

This will setup a SOCKS proxy to myserver.com and also protect your DNS requests
