Why not just use SSH?
Authored by: extra88 on Aug 12, '05 02:32:00PM

You're missing that the overzealous firewall blocks all outgoing except 80 and 443 so you can't get to 22 on your home machine.

Also creating the ssh tunnel requires authenticating at the ssh server. If you're just using that server as a middleman to sites like pop.gmail.com, why bother?
