SSH Tunnel

Let’s say your ISP blocks you from visiting certain websites. There are various ways of bypassing such restrictions. Here’s how I do it using SSH tunnels.

Note: This does not provide anonymity! Use Tor or JAP for that!

The traffic over this tunnel will count towards the monthly bandwidth quota of your hosting provider. Since I get over one terabyte of monthly transfer with Dreamhost, I am not so concerned about this factor. :-)
