Annoying http proxy.

I'm coming to really hate the http proxy at work, here. It ends up having problems way too frequently.

For half of last week, I was unable to reach any livejournal.com site. Then, all of a sudden, it worked again. Now I'm unable to reach linuxtoday.com.

Couple that with the fact that the whole proxy seems to fall over and die half a dozen times through the day, and you have all the makings for one very annoyed me.

Oh, well. Back to work.

Set up an ssh tunnel to a working http proxy running on your box at home. Then you don't have to worry about it. :)

An idea. . .

I've actually considered that, sort of. I can't use my home box right now, though, because the one machine I would use is offline, and the only thing I have available right now is my laptop, which isn't always on.

I might have access to another box that I'll do something like that on, though, if things keep up as they have been.

Re: An idea. . .

*nod* It's certainly worth considering. And it has the added bonus of masking your browsing habits from your employer. ;)

Re: An idea. . .

Yes, much like it currently does with my IRC habits. ;-)
