I'm using debian etch at work and I'm running a clarkconnect server at home (clarkconnect is basically redhat/fc).
Some other employees here just discovered the joy of sniffing/arp poisonning/mitm...
It bothers me. I'm not the kind of guy that will go cry at the mighty sysadmin, I'll take care of my own concern with the help of the community and ssh!
I want to secure my msn chatting and my web browsing.
On my clarkconnect box I have port 24958 listenning for ssh. How would I do this? like that?
ssh -C -L localport:localhost:remoteport username@remotehost
So if I do
ssh -C -L 1234:localhost:24958 firstname.lastname@example.org
I could tell firefox to use a proxy and point it to localhost:1234, right? Can I use the same tunel for gaim/msn?
