View Full Version : [ubuntu] Using VPS as a web proxy

November 28th, 2010, 09:12 PM
Hey guys, I have set my VPS up as a webproxy, just by remoting to it via ssh and setting firefox to use localhost as my SOCKS host .

Im not too familiar with TCP/IP et al, but using this method am I correct in thinking my packets sent using firefox on my localhost will be encrypted using SSH?

Second question is, if someone had access to my VPS would they then be able to see the unencrypted packets?
