At office we've got certain network traffic restrictions in place forcing me to look for other options. What I intend to configure is a SOCKS server running on Snow Leopard OSX, forwarded through the router available externally via dns alias, so I can connect over WAN if needed.
I have tried to create the server using the ssh -D port# user@externalhost
Afterwards, i tried to configure firefox to use the socks on 1080 and the external dns alias.
Any guideance is appreciated.
