I am a bit of noob, so I will explain my dilemma and would appreciate any advice to help me with it.
SSH Tunnel connecting to Vps vs OpenVPN - which of these would be better suited for the following:
I am a private user operating from a home computer. I need to be able to surf the internet privately with no chance of my IP (even country location) being discovered by the site I am visiting.
(Several sites notorious trackers for this sort of stuff and are fairly draconian). I know that SSH will not display pages should my connection to the server drop out, that is to say my real ip will not be revealed in that event(or so I've been told) what about OpenVPN? Will other tracking methods such as flash cookies circumvent these setups(not sure how it all works and where things end up in those circumstances). Additionally are there any other ways 'diligent' sites can track even if one of the above setups are in place. Thankyou for your help
