    SSH Question

    I understand I can use ssh to encrypt my web browsing. I went to Properties and started the ssh server. But how do I actually use it? Do I have to configure something?

    OK, no one took this for a reason, it is not quite simple as that, this requires some study to get going, say 20-30 min or so for basic "get this magic working but no real understanding" and maybe a few hours to understand the thing.
    if you want secure communication between two computers you "tunnel" the networking through ssh to the remote machine.
    ssh in it self is a "Secure SHell" that is a "console" for remote access, but as many things in linux it has many uses.
    look here for tunneling

    If tunneling is not what you look for search the net with favourite search engine for anonymous surfing or similar or explain what you want bit more in detail.

    Thanks for your help. I thought it would be something simpler. I do use a paid ssh tunneling service for anonymity when web-surfing so I guess I will stay with that.
