 +====== Using SSH to Bypass a Firewall ======
 +
 +If you are using Linux and you can SSH to another server, such as your web host, you can easily bypass just about any firewall.
 +
 +To do so, just open an SSH connection to another server and redirect traffic over that connection. ​ Here's the SSH command.
 +
 +  ssh -R 8088:​localhost:​80 user@host.com
 +
 +This will redirect local connections on port 8088 to port 80 on the host computer that you connected to via SSH.  Next, set your web browser to use an HTTP proxy on localhost at port 8088.
 +
 +Your browser will happily send data over port 8088, which will be forwarded over SSH.  Poof, you're in.
