browsing when I'm away from home.
I know how to set up everything on the client side (within my browser),
but I've always used public proxy servers. After googling for stuff, I
get the impression that I'll need to do something involving SSH
tunneling. With the proxy servers I've used, I never needed to open up
putty and set up forwarding that way. I just entered in the IP and
port of the server. Is there a site or quick list of directions that I
could go to for more information? (Even if I have to run an SSH client
on both my home and remote computers.)
I'm new to this stuff. Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions.

You don't *have* to use SSH; you could use an HTTP proxy like squid, with
authentication, for example, or a socks5 proxy.
