    Question wifi ssh tunnel 1st 90 seconds risk?

    Hi--

    Have figured out how to set up a proxy using socks5 and ssh to protect my browsing, and tsocks to protect my email in wifi hotspots.

    What are the risks for someone snooping on what I am doing, during the first 90 seconds or so when I am logging into the café wifi and establishing my ssh tunnel?

    My system: Ubuntu 10.04 lts; FF 3.6.20; Evo 2.28.3

    Thanks!

    Question

    Thanks!

    Ahh, I've been found out, asking a couple of different places. Hope that's OK. Yes, that is my question. There has been an additional question, basically taking it a step more and asking if my setup is at least OK, if not secure at the highest level.

    Do you have anything to add?

    Thanks for helping me, ehawk!

    Good to hear you got help

    Hi,

    I don't think there's any problem posting in multiple forums. I don't know very much about this, but I don't like to see someone get 0 responses, so I just do web searches to try and point people toward information or at least other people to contact. I just wanted to know if you received enough help from the other forums.
