Making an HTTP Proxy

ssh -D 8080 sudipto@hamlet.compbio.ucsf.edu

This will create a SOCKS5 proxy at port 8080 on localhost. Now we can configure our web browser to use this proxy to access articles. The firefox plugin foxyproxy makes this easy to setup. On windows, you can install cygwin and issue the same command.
