ssh -fND localhost:6000 somebody 192 168 56 5 -p PORTNUMBER
from computer "A" to computer "B" [B = 192.168.56.5] then I can set the SOCKS proxy for e.g.: Firefox to use "localhost:6000" on computer "A". Ok. I can surf the web through "B".
- Can anyone sniff the traffic of "A"? [e.g.: computers on same subnet as "A"] Like DNS requests? - I think no, but I'm not sure :O
- Can anyone sniff the traffic of computer "B"? e.g.: B computer is at a server farm [others in the farm can see the traffic?] - I think yes, but I'm not sure :O
