And an ssl tunnel to that system that effectively maps a local port (e.g 8080) to the remote one.
Assuming the proxy on the other side is up and running, we can do the following:
ssh -L 8080:localhost:8888 remote-server-with-proxy-service
Now we can configure one of our local browsers to use local port 8080 and access the proxy on the other side.
A useful trick if we need to access services geographically restricted (e.g tv streaming etc)
