Create a SOCKS proxy on a Linux server with SSH to bypass content filters

Are you on a network with limited access? Is someone filtering your internet traffic, limiting your abilities? Well, if you have SSH access to any server, you can probably set up your own SOCKS5 proxy and tunnel all your traffic over SSH.

From that point on, what you do on your laptop/computer is sent encrypted to the SOCKS5 proxy (your SSH server) and that server sends the traffic to the outside. It’s an SSH tunnel on steroids through which you can easily pass HTTP and HTTPs traffic. And it isn’t even that hard.
