Simple SOCKS proxy

Create a simple SOCKS proxy with SSH by using the -D flag:

ssh -D 2400
That command will open up a SOCKS proxy on your workstation on port 2400. If you configure your application to use the local SOCKS proxy, any traffic using the proxy will be sent through an encrypted SSH connection to your remote server and out to the internet. Inbound traffic through the proxy is encrypted through the same connection.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
