Using VPS as a Proxy?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello i am wondering if this is an effective method of browsing the internet anonymously.

I used this method to set up my VPS bought from vpsville:
http://tipupdate.com/how-to-use-vps-as-proxy-ssh-tunnel/

I used TOR browser to activate the gift card which i used to pay for the VPS.


My question is, is this really an anonymous method to use?


I have been using TOR but i really dislike the fact that it changes to out of the US ip's.

Thanks and sorry for the noob question.

Yes it is secure via SSH tunneling. Its what i use when im surfing the web from a open networks/cafes

EDIT: just open a dynamic port like its on the website u provided and tunnel firefox/xchat or whatever u want through it smile.gif

Only downside is that your IP wouldn't be dynamic.

Tunnel your traffic through SSH and you will have encrypted link from your house to the VPS.
Disable forwarding parts of HTTP headers to hide the fact you're using squid.

They definitely come in handy, such as if you take a trip overseas and still need to watch Hulu.

Depends what browser your using. If its not doing the dns on the server then your cover is blown via dns leaks. You need to use socks. If your using opera bad luck it don't support socks. So your real ip can still be seen. Start up firefox then download http headers live and you'll see that servers really ask from your browsers.

Use privoxy with it. Its easy to fwd with it
