If you can access a remote machine via SSH you can use that to
forward requests to the proxy server, using OpenSSH's tunnels.
For example I have a host I can connect to from work, and I simpl
ssh -L 8080:localhost:8080 firstname.lastname@example.org
This forwards all traffic sent to the local machine on port 8080
to port 8080 on the home gateway which is running squid.
Once this is done inside your browser you simply set your proxy
to b localhost:8080 and all will work correctly.
You can (google for ppp over ssh) but it's slow and incurs a penalty
Instead you should simple use SSH's tunnel facilities, which will be
perfect for your problem. (And the proxy server doesn't even have to
run on the host you're SSH'ing to, so long as the two hosts can see
each other all will be well).
