openSSH - total newb who can't even read the tutorials....


So I've been trying to use these tutorials for help: http://inside.mines.edu/~gmurray/HowTo/sshNotes.html
and
http://support.suso.com/supki/SSH_Tutorial_for_Linux

But I can't read them. They assume more than I know.

I want to use this to access sites like youtube and facebook. I don't know what I'm doing.

The first tutorial says,

"Check that ssh functions at all: SSH can replace telnet even without keys. Suppose you are connecting to the remote computer remote.edu. as user "dude". Run

$ ssh dude@remote.edu
and ssh will ask if you want to keep connecting, type "yes", and then it should ask for your password and open a shell in dude's home directory on remote.edu, just like telnet. If this fails, there is a problem somewhere. Make sure ssh is installed on your end, and also make sure that remote.edu is accepting ssh connections. If it's not, you're wasting your time.
Once ssh is functioning we will set up the keys so that it will no longer be necessary to send passwords. If you are curious about the theory of this then read up on "public key cryptography"."

So what variable should I use in place of "Dude?" and what is the actual value for @....? And where would I find this info? I'm a total beginner.

Thanks

You will not be able to access youtube or facebook directly by SSH, are you getting confused with HTTPS:// which is the secure web browsing protocol?

I wouldn't know

I guess so. Basically, I tried freevpnhosting.com, and it wouldnt' work. The cause was my router - apparently my router was too old or something. So i'm looking for other possibilities. I can't change the router. Astrill will not work. Strongvpn.com is behind a firewall.

So what can i do? I'm lost.

Goals

I need a vpn. I don't know what to do. Freevpnhosting's vpn will not work, and astrill has a problem with my isp.

I want to use websites that are behind a firewall I deal with - facebook, youtube, twitter

The Tor bundle is a good bet for anonymization. Read the docs and see if that is something you are interested in.

Tor problem

Ok, so I'm trying to install Tor as per the last suggestion, but I ran into a problem. I was following the directions on this page: https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en#ubuntu and when I ran the command sudo apt-get update, I got this:

W: A error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error: http://cn.archive.ubuntu.com precise-backports Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>

E: Unable to parse package file /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/cn.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_precise-updates_universe_i18n_Index (1)

What can I do now?

I'm pretty newb myself but I think he's trying to use ssh to tunnel around network restrictions like a socks proxies.
But the tor method might be easier
