The aim is to have my SSL proxy so I can add it to my FireFox by
Options -> Advanced -> Network -> Settings -> Manual proxy configuration -> SSL Proxy, Port -> OK
What I currently have:
- a VPS hosting account with root SSH enabled
- an SSL certificate installed to one of the domains hosted in that VPS How should I do it?
Basically, I need what expressvpn.com is offering.
Thus far I tried:
PuTTY -> Connection -> SSH -> Tunnels -> etc.
To set up a SOCKS5 proxy on my localhost via the SSH tunnel I am able to establish to my remote VPS host but it seems it's still not as secure or as anonymous as expressvpn.com.
I also tried https://www.some-web-proxy.com, or similar web proxy sites with HTTPS / SSL enabled on them, and they worked. However, the problems with them are
- sessions keep going wrong
- sometimes got recognized by some sites as mobile device thus being served with a mobile version of the website
I don't want to pay for this kind of VPN service because I believe I have everything they have, I just need to set it up on my VPS server via SSL. Right?
Any idea would be appreciated!
