    So im pretty confused at the moment :confused:

    Im pretty sure im making a very noobie technical mistake here.

    I recently stumbled upon threads in the proxy section that show how i can use a vps as a proxy in my browser thru putty/

    so i bought a vps and now i tried all the instructions nessecary but i the vps doesnt work...

    i got some questions do i need to enter a root ssh key to activate my vps? wtf is that and how do i it?

    do i need to put a domain on my vps for me to use it as a proxy thru putty

    what am i doing wrong here, any guesses would help:amish:

    Step 1: Use putty to ssh to the server to verify your server is active.
    Step 2: Configure putty for the tunnel
    Step 3: Launch the tunnel (you'll need to login)
    Step 5: Configure your browser to use the tunnel

    You should be done.

    You do not need to do anything with ssh keys. You do not need a domain.

    Oops, I just saw the OP was banned. Maybe for using a proxy ;)
