Quick, easy SOCKS proxy shortcuts
I noticed in another thread someone pointed to a tutorial for using ssh tunneling with Firefox, so I thought I would share my method for Chrome.
I have 2 shortcuts on my desktop, both for Chrome. The first is normal, but the target in the other is:
Just use putty or however you ssh into your server (I personally use cygwin) with
ssh -D 1080 [email protected]
and launch the Chrome proxy shortcut.
I'm sure most everyone knows how to tunnel, but the shortcuts on the desktop might be handy
