How to create a SOCKS tunnel

ssh -fNCqD 1080
  • -f - Fork in the background.
  • -N - No command is sent once the tunnel is up.
  • -C - Compress the data before sending it.
  • -q - Quiet mode.
  • -D - Dynamic application level port forwarding. Supports SOCKS protocol.

The above creates a SOCKS proxy listening on port 1080.
