Re:SSH forwarding

to pipe your data through SSH, it'd be much better to do a real tunnel (ssh -d 8080 server) and pipe your browser's traffic through localhost:8080 (or whatever port you want to use). it's much less bandwidth-intensive than using remote apps, and it's easier to do from windows (just need putty, not putty and xming)

Re:SSH forwarding

2 additions to JBu92's comment: 1.) The type of proxy running on this dynamic port should be SOCKS5. 2.) You should also make sure your browser is tunelling all DNS requests through this connection. In Firefox's about:config page, "network.proxy.socks_remote_dns" should be true.
