Access to a proxy server located on an outside network can be handy; folks in certain countries may need it to reach unfiltered content; others may want to reach local resources on a remote LAN; some may want to use Google Voice phone out services from overseas, or buy stuff online without geolocation issues. Commercial VPN services, which could work for most of the above purposes, are both expensive and frequently inaccessible in certain countries which will remain nameless. Those and other factors have lead me to explore a number of options for obtaining relative online autonomy. Other applications can be configured to tunnel via SOCKS proxy but for most folks, a tunneled web browse will likely be sufficient. The thought of administering a Linux server is enough to make most folks run for the exits. Any such fear is entirely unjustified in this case; what we are doing is dead simple. Ubuntu and Debian images are the most common but just about anything should do. Type yes to accept the certificate then enter the SSH password provided by your host when prompted.

Proxies and VPNs differ in nature, although they can provide some of the same services. A VPN routes all of the network traffic on a client computer through a tunnel to some other server computer. No individual application configuration is required. In contrast, using a proxy requires each application to be individually configured to ensure its traffic goes through the proxy. The intent of a VPN is to allow a remote client computer to access network resources in some other location as if it were physically located in the same office. One of those network resources can be access to the internet, which masks the IP address of the remote computer. A proxy is more limited in that it cannot provide access to remote resources, but it can mask your IP address and provide geo-obfuscation services.
On the face of it, it appears that both proxies and VPNs provide the same services. In reality they are quite different tools with very different purposes. A proxy server acts as an intermediary between your computer and any computer you are connecting to.
