I just got it working on my phone, using SSH Tunnel, so that's great.

I got it working on my Android phone, using SSH Tunnel. When I open whatismyip.com, I see the IP of the server.

I like the ssh-tunnel solution to start with. When using that I have the same problem, I can connect but not browse. Is that the same issue?

comment How to use openvpn for browsing
I have used tunnels before to connect my local database client to the database on the server. I have created a special user on the server for this and can make a connection. Browsing results in the browser reporting that the connection is reset. So it doesn't work. I can ping to yahoo.com when logged into the server via ssh, so DNS works. Maybe it's what @davidgo says, and I have to configure iptables. I'm using UFW and prefer to avoid iptables if possible.

comment Why can't old PCs view modern sites?
I've used Unity for several months and just switched to Gnome 3 classic. I don't see how Unity would use up much more system resources, except for the occasional transition effect, like when minimizing a window. That can be disabled, but even if it's enabled it won't make the system slower overall. It will just be ugly.

comment Problems running xampp
Set XAMPP to use a different port, like 81 instead of 80! (And I can't believe that they - MS - use port 80 for this!)
