ssh tunnelling internet access

My university has a subscription to some journals that I want to access. The web page has to be accessed from the school network.

I could ssh into my linux box at school and run netscape using x11 forwarding (which is slllloooowwww). What I want to do is route my internet traffic through the linux box at school using ssh port forwarding. I've tried forwarding ports 80 and 443 through ssh, but this doesn't work.

ssh -L 80:school.server:80 -L 443:school.server:443 -R 80:school.server:80 -R 443:school.server:443 school.server

I've also tried...

ssh -L 5080:school.server:80 school.server

And connecting to localhost:5080. All I get then is the web page I have on the school server. Any ideas?
