    Hey guys, I had a friend help me with this in the past; but I can't for the life of me remember how we did it. We were using Red Hat at the time, but I'm using Debian now. I want to setup a proxy server on my linux box so that I can use Putty to SSH to it from another location. Basically, I want to access my home internet through this box from a distant location. Can anyone please show me where to find a tutorial or tell me how this is possible. Do I need to setup a gateway (ie. using 2 NICs)?

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm kinda lost here. Why proxy server ? for ssh you only need openssh server installed :)

    Maybe your firewall blocked it?

    Is there a tutorial on how to install openssh on Debian? And when I do, how would I use it as a proxy from a distant computer?

    What exactly are you trying to do.

    If you want to install openssh then issue in command line:
    apt-get install ssh openssh-server
    Try this resource for aditional info:
