MacOSX+SSH+SOCKS+Proxy

March 1st, 2014

Here is how you connect your mac to an ssh server and establish Dynamic port forwarding allowing you to browse safely.

1. Open Terminal

2. st0ma:~ st0ma$ ssh -D 8080 st0ma@codero.soteks.org
Authenticate with your ssh user credentials.
3. In your browser of choice, setup the advanced network settings to use a socks proxy
on localhost (or IP 127.0.0.1) and port 8080 as we issued in the Dynamic forwarding in point 2.

Please note that Mac requires super user privileges in case you would like to forward priority ports such as 80.

Cheers,

St0ma
