Is there a package I can install in debian that will create a SOCKS5 proxy on some port? (preferably with authentication)
I'd like to use this with uTorrent.
If not, how do you setup a socks5 proxy on a server?
Try an SSH tunnel. There is no setup required on either side*!
To create a tunnel from the client:
where 1234 is the port on localhost you want the tunnel to run on, yourusername is your username on the server, and yourserver is the server.
Use localhost as the proxy, port 1234 (or whatever you chose above). SSH will automatically tunnel through the server, securely.
*you might not have SSH, in which case, on the server,
