I'll take a look at it, though it's not only another moving part, from
that web page it appears to be not just a general-purpose tunnel and
proxy but also a floor wax and a dessert topping....
I generally do my browsing over an ssh tunnel to somewhere not on a
wireless net, for all the obvious reasons. In the past, I've run a
squid proxy on a well-located machine, and ssh'd to it, forwarding
3128 (or whatever) from my laptop to that proxy. In the interest of
reducing the number of moving parts I have to maintain, I tried using
ssh's built-in SOCKS proxy (the DynamicForward option in the config
file) instead. That works well for most web sites, but if the web
has a AAAA record -- and that includes www.netbsd.org -- the
returns EOF immediately.
Any fixes? Work-arounds?
this probably isn't what you're looking for, but have you thought of
trying something like delegate?
(also replaces squid)
