Currently I have a tunnel setup with my work Linux box (remote machine) and my macbook at home (local machine). Jira and other tools can only be accessed through our intranet so I'd like to use SOCKS to proxy my web browser traffic using firefox and my tunnel.
On my remote machine I route traffic through port 43022 and then to port 22 on my local network.
ssh -R 43022:localhost:22 home@home_external_ip
At home I access the remote machine using that port.
ssh work.username@localhost -p 43022
How can I set this up to allow proxying through a web browser?
ssh -D 43022 work.username@localhost
ran from my local machine gives me a password prompt for what I assume is the root user which I do not have access to. Only my own account on the remote machine.
