My ISP seems to be having some configuration problems cos of which I cant download certain files (mostly exe and msi and some rpm files) as the download either doesnt start (firefox download window showing "Starting..." all the time) or download gets stuck at some point of time.
However I have access to my college computer through SSH using public key authentication and my college computer has internet access 24x7. I would like to be helped with 2 things:
How do I use the internet through my college computer? Like when I use the internet, the requests go through my college computer so it must appear that the requests come from my college computer IP while I use firefox from my home computer
How do I configure yum to download packages through my college computer? I want to setup yum to use the IP of my college computer to download the packages.
In short, I want to use the ISP of my college computer for all internet access from my home.
@billymayday: I was experimenting with various ports thinking that it might be a problem with the port number... Anyways, I once again changed the port to 3456 and proxy=http://127.0.0.1:3456/... Sorry for mistyping the port number of the discussion
