So my workplace uses websense to block certain websites. I read while researching firesheep
, that you can somehow bypass that by creating a proxy, and thus:
#1 protect yourself from people using firesheep (if using unsecure hot-spot)
#2 or visit un-approved websites at work.
I haven't been able to create a proxy from their directions...
Is this possible?

Specifically from Geek to Live: Encrypt your web browsing session (with an SSH SOCKS proxy)
The section says:
"You're at an open wireless hotspot, but you don't want to send your web browsing data over it in plain text. Or you want to visit a non-work-approved web page from the office computer without the IT team finding out."
