Hello. My office use this method to access wikipedia behind the great
firewall of China:
1) we have a server in europ, let's call it server;
2) I run this command on my desktop:
$ ssh -L 80:en.wikipedia.org:80 server;
3) everybody in the office edit /etc/hosts, add this line:
So my computer become a 'proxy'.
The trouble is I have to keep the ssh running there. The 'proxy' will
not automatically set up next time I reboot my computer.
Is it possible to install some software to run as a daemon and do this
I think of stunnel, but I have too few knowledge to know if stunnel can
