Tunneling my internet connection through a remote server with SSH [duplicate]

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I'm based in the UK and would like to proxy my browser traffic through a CentOS server I have set up in the US. From what I've gathered through Google if I execute a command like this on my server: ssh -C2qTnN -D 8080 username@remote_host It will set up a SSH tunnel on my server for pointing to username@remote_host. But how do I set up a basic proxy (I don't need any encryption) so I can plonk in an ip:port into my web browsers proxy settings and proxy through my remote server when browsing the internet? (HowTos)
