    Unhappy using remote internet connection to surf the web ?

    Can I login to my local computer, but use the internet connection of a remote server ? if so, how ? I have never done this before and am trying to experiment with ssh/tunneling protocols like socks and vpn.. I need laymen terms when being explained to about this because this is something I am fresh in using.

    I apologize in advance if this was posted in the wrong forum. I went to the channel before and received no help over this issue as it's been a while and wanted to try this again...

    I want to try connecting to another friends computer/internet connection and direct my traffic through his/her computer to and from mine... if that makes sense ?

    It makes sense and (I think) it's possible with a VPN. Of course, you need an internet connection in order to reach the remote machine. Achieving that all the rest (I suppose) depends on the service configuration.
