Privacy Tunnel DNS Lookups through socks proxy when browsing

SSH SOCKS option is a great way to quickly tunnel web traffic. BUT DNS traffic is still in the clear.

SOCKS5 in Firefox can be configured handle DNS lookups by the remote (secured) end:

  • Set network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = true in about:config. A double click will flip it from false to true and you are done.
