Well SSH thing from the topic honestly didn’t help me that much. Or its just me that I didn’t get it.
The truth is, I dunno even if I need VPN, what I need is access to sites that are blocked. And these are not porn sites, or god knows what, but normal sites that firewall where I am blocks for various reasons. Some of those blocked ones are even newspapers for that matter.
But If you could give me suggestion for some other solution than VPN, or point me towards some step-by-step How To’s that would solve my situation, I would be more than greatful.
I’m assuming this is a workplace where your trying to connect from? If
so why not ask your IT department to allow the sites you need to access?
Else if you don’t understand ssh tunneling, then if you have a computer
at home with an active internet connection (and running linux) then
just setup NX server on the home system. You could then use the nx
client to connect and browse on the remote machine.
Note, avoiding someones firewall requirements may be in breach of terms
and conditions, so the best action is always to ask the IT department

Actually its not a workplace, but living place and thats the problem. If I had an opportunity to browse internet elsewhere I wouldn’t mind. But I use computer for personal things only at home, at work I have to comply with IT department policies, and I do not mind, as it would only distract me
But I live in a ‘special’ area, and we are all in a big lan, which has firewall, and I wouldn’t breach any terms and conditions as there aren’t any. I checked
So that is kind of not an option, what you proposed Although its witty, I must agree
