Use ssh as a SOCKS proxy

At the moment I work from another place than home and sometimes I need to get on the internal network. Normally you would VPN for that kind of thing. But if your not scared to use SSH then it’s not that hard. First you need to open a connection to your internal network. ssh -D 9000 hostname The -D 9000 option will open a port and create SOCKS proxy on your local machine....
