Websites/FTP doesn't work. SCP and SFTP does. Can I tunnel/proxy in? Tags: Connection Internet Networking Last response: September 27, 2007 8:58 PM in Networking Share crewxp September 26, 2007 11:37:07 PM Hey, there seems to be a problem with the internet where I stay at. There aren't very many experts or technical people that I know, so I thought I might ask here. When I browse and download through the internet (firefox etc, web browser), my downloads go at about 50KB/s. When I use SCP or SFTP to connect to my dedicated server and transfer files back and forth, I download at about 300KB/s. Is there any way I can setup firefox to tunnel through whatever scp and sftp uses to connect, and browse the internet with that? That or, setup a proxy on my server, and use the scp or sftp connection to connect to that proxy, and have firefox download through that? Thanks a lot.

These two encrypts the data in SSH so it's more secure than regular ftp which transmit data in clear text... YOu can get a plugin for firefox which does SFTP.... I think.. I remember seeing one.
