Poor man’s VPN using SSH and SOCKS proxy for MacOS

Add the following aliases to your .bash_profile:

alias socks_on="ssh -D 8666 -C -N -f -M -S ~/.socks.socket $USER@<your_office_gateway>; networksetup -setsocksfirewallproxystate Wi-Fi on;"
alias socks_off="networksetup -setsocksfirewallproxystate Wi-Fi off; ssh -S ~/.socks.socket -O exit $USER@<your_office_gateway>;"

Later you can start your tunnel with command

socks_on

and stop it with

socks_off
