Open SSH Tunnel using Crosh:

CTRL + Alt + T

This will open a new tab in Google Chrome. Now enter the following commands:

user brian
port 22
dynamic-forward 8800

You will then be prompted for a password for the remote server.

Now we need to force Chrome to use the tunnel.

Download the tunnelswitch extension:

Open up the extension options and set to the following:

1. Tick FIXED server
2. Socks 5
3. Host:
4. Port: 8800

Save that and then to activate click the TunnelSwitch icon on the top right of Chrome.

That’s the tunnel setup.
