Before doing the below

An account needs to be created for you on the SSH server. Please log a support ticket specifying what server you would like to get your account created on.

  1. Open up terminal
  2. Copy and paste in the below commands
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zinglau/obfuscated-openssh
    
    sudo apt-get update
    
    sudo apt-get upgrade -y
  3. To verify your ssh client has been updated with obfuscation, type ssh -V. You should see something like below
    ssh-client-version 
  4. Type in the below command. Be sure to add your VPN username (not your email) and the obfuscated password (this will be given to you)
    sudo ssh –D 999 your_vpn_username@ssh_server -p 999 -Z obfuscated_password
  5. Once connected open up the application you would like to setup with port forwarding. Below is an example in Firefox which will forward all browsing traffic on 999 via the server you connected to
