SSH Tunnel + SOCKS Proxy Forwarding = Secure Browsing December 8, 2006

Posted by Carthik in applications, commands, guides, servers, ubuntu.
trackback

When you are at the coffee shop, or at a conference, and you are not sure that you want to send all your data over the wi-fi network in plaintext, you want a secure tunnel to browse. This happened to me recently and I stumbled across a neat feature of openssh (the ssh client on everyone’s computer). The wonders of ssh never cease to amaze me!

You can use the “-D” flag of openssh to create a SOCKS proxy.

The command first:
$ssh -D 9999 username@ip-address-of-ssh-server

This of course connects you to the server specified by “ip-address-of-ssh-server”. Needless to say, you (username) must have an ssh account on the server. In addition, this will create a SOCKS proxy on port “9999” of your computer. This is a tunnel to the server. Now all you have to do is set the preference in Firefox to use a SOCKS proxy. The proxy is, of course, “localhost”, with the port 9999.

Now when you browse, all the connections you make to websites will seem to originate from the server to which you SSH-ed. In addition, all outgoing and incoming data for the browsing session will be encrypted since it passes through the SSH connection.

Other applications (like email clients) may also support SOCKS proxies. If any of them, you can look into using proxychains(there’s an Ubuntu package).

You can misuse this technology to circumvent paranoid browsing firewalls, even to pretend you are wherever your ssh server is located – so you can work around country-based blocks etc. I use it for the very unromantic reason that I don’t want some aspiring cracker to sneak up on me when I am in public.

[...] This tip is courtesy of the Ubuntu Blog, but I just discovered it also works perfectly well in OS X and with some hot Putty action you could probably even pull it off with Windows. I’m writing this using it now. [...]

2. AnonEcon - December 8, 2006

The idea would be really useful for tunneling into an otherwise secure network (say your corporate intranet). But for general browsing, since the Internet beyond the SSH server is also untrusted, won’t it be better to rely on protocols that provide end-to-end encryption (like SSL/TLS) when security is necessary and browse in plaintext when it is not.

5. verevi - December 8, 2006

I’ve been doing exactly this every time I’m in a coffee shop. I use the FoxyProxy firefox extension to quickly enable/disable this forwarding. If you do this regularly, I highly recommend this extension.

6. Mario Limonciello - December 8, 2006

Also, for a less featured Firefox extension just to turn this on and off, I use MM3-ProxySwitch. It adds a button in your FF buttons bar that lights up when proxied. You click it, and the proxy turns off.

7. John - December 8, 2006

I have been using an ssh server at my house to get around a restrictive transparent proxy at my workplace. I set up my home ssh server to listen on port 443 so all of the ssh traffic looks like SSL web browsing.

A good Gnome based tool to use for setting up these proxies automatically is Gnome SSH Tunnel Manager or gSTM which you can find at http://gstm.sourceforge.net/.

Also, if you have programs that dont have the ability to use a socks proxy you can use a program called tsocks. There is a good article on how to use it here http://tips.linux.com/article.pl?sid=06/06/06/200234&tid=100.

8. The Colonel » Learned something new with SSH today - December 9, 2006

[...] Luckily, with SOCKS5 Firefox can control which side of the proxy handles DNS lookups. By default, it does the lookups locally resulting in the scenario above. To change this, set network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = true in about:config. This makes the SOCKS proxy more like a regular proxy, where DNS is handled by the remote end of the tunnel.

How can I make this listen for all computers on my network though? Like if I am doing an ‘ssh -D1234 my.shellcompany.com’, another computer on my network isn’t able to connect to port 1234 and also use it as a proxy (It’s only listening locally, for the computer that actually runs the ssh -D command.) In PuTTY there is a little tick-box on the Tunnel page that allows you to to “Allow incoming connections from outside”, thus meaning ALL of my computers on my network can enjoy the use of this tunnel. How do I do this with manual SSH syntax?

17. Arthur - March 14, 2007

I´m using this solution, but now I have to connect 10 clients at the same type. To do that, I have 10 IP adresses on my server. The problem is: I connect the 10 clients, but all this clients get the same IP adress. If I surf on web w/ this 10 clients, all them will use only one IP adress from the server. There is a way to change the route or gateway? I mean for each ssh connection and local socks5 opened, I´ll have one IP address for surfing? Thanks

23. mounty - May 27, 2007

Something I banged my head against for a while was this: in Firefox, don’t set your HTTP proxy to localhost:9999 and use that for everything else. You have to leave all the proxy slots blank EXCEPT the SOCKS host field – that’s where you enter your information. This isn’t an HTTP proxy, so the settings won’t work in that field.

Henri - November 10, 2010

Wow. THAT is THE trick : remove all proxy fields in the firefox config dialog, just leave the SOCKS one.

Thank you, I spent hours struggling with that.

Aaron - May 14, 2009

If you set up your –

network.proxy.share_proxy_settings;true in the about:config on firefox this makes the remote machine handle DNS. If you have it set to false it cause it to use local DNS.

34. Dave Dean - November 20, 2007

Just a minor addition you might like .. FoxyProxy (a firefox extension) has a handy tick-box for “Use SOCKS proxy for DNS Lookups” in the option menu. FoxyProxy makes dealing with proxies much less painful in general as an added bonus.

44. soltan - February 12, 2008

[quote]You can misuse this technology to circumvent paranoid browsing firewalls…[/quote]
This will work provided port 22 remains open to contact the ssh server. If the paranoid network admins are also blocking any traffic on port 22 this is hopeless. Unless we find an open port and instruct our ssh server to also listen on that port…
Let’s say port 22 is blocked but port 443 (HTTPS) is open, then to make the tunnel to your ssh server you’d have to do the following:
$ssh -p443 -D 9999 username@ip-address-of-ssh-server

Peter - June 24, 2009

Works very well ;)

Just ensure ssh is listening on 443 on your server.

Edit sshd_config to listen on 443

Note: This technique will not prevent an attacker from sniffing out your traffic at your home network.

60. mike - November 11, 2008

Hi,

SSH SOCKS proxy is one of the way to have a secure tunnel for web browsing. It’s comes handy when we need to do secure browsing in a public network such as in a public WiFi environment, as the traffic between our host and the proxy is encrypted .

For this to work, we need to have an SSH server somewhere that we want to tunnel our traffic to, and an SSH client at our host.
