Use SOCKS proxy running on a remote machine

How can I use socks proxy which is on a remote machine?

Machine A: Running a socks5 proxy on port 1080..
Machine B: Wants to use socks proxy of Machine A..

How can I do that? I have access to both the machines..

Thanks. Using the third link, I got the solution.


On machine B, $ssh -L 1080: user@machineAip
On machine B, traffic on port 1080 is forwarded to MachineA:1080 port. So, I am actually using MachineA's internet on MachineB.
