I want to encrypt my browsing. According to this lifehacker article it can be done by setting up OpenSSH on Windows with Cygwin.
What I don't understand is:
If I install the server on my computer and start it, and then connect to it from the same computer; will my browsing be encrypted?
If not, do I need to run the ssh server on a separate computer, which I then connect to? I don't want to connect to a different computer.
