Staying Safe Online (Basic)

We are going to be covering how to stay safe on the internet now there are a lot of benefits to this.
1. You can hide your IP address which means you won’t get DDOS attacks sent to your home connection.
2. To stay hidden on websites that you don’t want tracked by your IP address.
3. If your banned from something on your home connection you can use a VPN to have a clean record.
First of all you need a vpn (duh) there are a lot of good vpn’s on HF that are pretty good but I currently use one called tunnelbear it seems fine just to prevent ddos attacks and getting resolved on skype.


Now also if you want to be extra secured you can use something called SOCKS5 proxies and these are very easy to use but the hard part is to get some good ones.

You can get some free ones here : but not might be the best.

Now if you were wondering how to use these you can use them with either chrome or firefox. If you want to portforward to use them make sure to download something called Putty and forward it here. And this is how you do it.

In Putty: Open Putty, enter into ‘Host Name (or IP address)’ your host /
proxy’s IP (, ‘Port’ enter port from host (your host might
give you a range to choose from like: 21,22,23,80,443).
Connection type: select ‘SSH’. Saved Sessions enter any name you like.

Left pane – Connection/SSH select ‘Don’t start a shell or command at all’

Connection/SSH/Tunnels select ‘Dynamic’ then in ‘Source port’ enter your
source port, for ex: 8282 (‘Source port’ is the port it will listen on
from your box, so pick any port that is open). Then click Add.

Session/ Click the ‘Save’ button.

If you want to use VanDyke’s SecureCRT, it’s really too heavy of an app to
use for this tiny job, here are the settings:
Connect button/ New Session button (3rd from left) / Protocol select SSH2/
Fill in information for Server/ Name anything/ Finish. Then right click on
your new session under Session, select Properties/Connections/Port
Forwarding/ Select ‘Do not request a shell’. Click Add button, enter your
source/listening port under ‘Remote’: 8282, select ‘Dynamic forwarding
using SOCKS4 or 5’, click OK.

To conclude this thread a main part of staying safe is to not give out your skype and other information as much because there are people out there that are dicks and want to wreck you over.
