Reddit is blocked by my ISP. :(
I want to bypass it using SSH Tunneling.
I have an (trusted) remote web server I can use (have the username and password).
I have downloaded PuTTY and can successfully establish a connection to the server.
Here's the first three lines of PuTTY's connection console: (my username and host is hidden)
login as: <my-username> <my-username>@<my-host> password: Linux debianx 2.6.26-2-amd64 #1 SMP Sun Mar 4 21:48:06 UTC 2012 x86_64
I also tried executing this command:
ssh -D 8080 -f -C -q -N -p 2222 <my-username>@<my-host> &
And it responds with this result:
 12284. What does that mean?
The question is, is it possible to create an SSH Tunnel to bypass my ISP's internet filtering with all I have?
Another question, I use Mozilla Firefox, and when I entered the "SOCKS Host", should I use SOCKS v4 or SOCKS v5?
Note: I'm very newbie and don't have much knowledge on internet protocols. Sorry for dumb questions.
