Encrypting HTTP over SSH tunnel

I have a box (slackware 9.0, CLI only) that has a static IP on the web and is running sshd. I want to be able to have a client connect via SSH to that box. So far this is easy.

I want the client to go through the internet, to connect to the server, and then use the server's internet connection to browse the web.

The reason I need to do this is that our school has a linux unfriendly proxy, and we (the tech kids who run the school) need access to the internet every now and then from linux boxen. We have the blessing of the IT man in charge, so all is good.

How would I get the client web browser to send data over the SSH tunnel without fargling the tunnel itself?

Well, it worked just fine with the ssh -L 80: IPADDY command.

Thanks for the help.

Just a thought - if your proxy is the same as my school's proxy, then you could look into the ntlm authorization proxy server, it's a proxy that you set up that connects to the windoze proxy

Extra proxy = no no

We tried that, but the administration shut it down because they deemed it too much of a security hazard.

In other news, we were DDOS'd today, and our internet connection went below the 1 KB/s mark for our T1 line. YAY!!

One other thing you can do to speed up the net is run ssh -C to compress the traffic. Its what I do for my dialup
