Re: [vox-tech] squid proxy server & client configuration tobypass GFW

Have you tried using ssh socks proxy using the -D option?

ssh -D 1234 remotehost.com

In firefox, go to network -> advanced settings.

and select it to use localhost, port 1234. You should configure
Firefox to use dns proxy too.

network.proxy.socks_remote_dns true

This site has some info.
