    Easiest way for SOCKS proxy is to use SSH tunnels - I assume you are using Windows so sorry if you are not!

    1. Download Putty
    2. Open up Putty
    3. On the first screen put in the IP address of your VPS
    4. On left hand panel, click the [+] next to SSH
    5. On the options that appear select Tunnel
    6. In source port, select a port that is not being used on your PC - for example 1080
    7. Make sure you select the Dynamic option box as well
    8. Click add (you should see D1080 appear in the 'forwarded ports box'
    9. Click open
    10. Tap in your username and password
    11. Minimize (DO NOT CLOSE) the putty window
    12. In Firefox, now go to Tools Options > Advanced > Network
    13. Click Settings > Select Manual proxy configuration
    14. In SOCKS host: hostname - localhost / port - 1080 (or whatever you selected in step 6)
    15. Okay your way out of all the dialogue boxes
    16. In FF address bar type about:config
    17. Search for network.proxy.socks_remote_dns
    18. Double click the line to make sure the value is set to true (this helps prevent dns leaks)

    You should now be browsing via your VPS - check you IP address at http://showmyipaddress.info to make sure.

    Any app that has a SOCKS option can now go through the tunnel.

    Hope that helps - questions, just shout

    You should think of increasing your budget of $10, or use our good ol' friend google for a good tutorial. There are tons out there, and its free.

    If you have a VPS and can SSH in then you should be able to use the tunnel solution, thats all it is, SSH really :)
