Openssh as proxy server connection

Today I discovered the ssh -D feature which can be used as a secure proxy server connection.

For example I am using ssh -D 4589 username@hostname     to make a secure connection to the hostname. 4589 is the local port to be used . After connecting to the  remote hostname If you configure the proxy settings in the browser( In the socks field put and as port put 4589 or whatever port you define in the command ) you'll be using your own proxy server! no need to use the insecure public proxys.

Check the manual of SSH for more info
