SSH Tunneling to the max here!

Silly Putty:
putty -D 8080 -P 443 -ssh HOME_PUBLIC_IP -L

simple sox:
ssh -N -f -D -p 9032

-D 8080 sets up a SOCKS proxy listening on port 8080. This allows you to configure any application that supports using a SOCKS proxy to tunnel through your SSH proxy. To use this in an application, set as the proxy address and 8080 for the port. This will allow you to browse the web securely in remote locations and also bypass any restrictions imposed on you by the remote network.
-P 443 specifies the listening port of the SSH server that you want to establish a connection with.
-L says to listen on localhost port 3333 and forward all traffic to your home private IP address on port 3389.

You can change both 8080 and 3333 to any available port.

Chrome tidbits:
spawn in new process:
chrome doesn’t have command line switch to force launches to occur in a new process. however, there is a way to trick it into doing so. i used this: C:\[$App path$]\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe -proxy-server=[proxy:port] -incognito -user-data-dir=C:\foo the -user-data-dir switch make is open as a new process. the directory “foo” doesn’t have to exist, but after opening your shortcut it will be created.
