April 18th, 2010, 07:14 AM
Hi, I've a ssh to another machine which is directly connected to internet.
So I do a

ssh -D 1234 user@netmachine
And then in firefox i can set socks proxy with host as localhost and port as 1234.
I dont understand what i'm doing but i'm able to browse internet.
I want to update my laptop and install packages either using synaptic or apt get.
I found about tsocks and installed that. What is the configuration should i change so that
sudo tsocks synaptic will work, currently its not working. :(
