I suggest it is not a dup because "server" probably means no unity gui. I'd love to see the same answer for a non gui as 15719 question – Jay _silly_evarlast_ Wren Jul 5 '12 at 15:10

Besides firefox socks5-client setup (which is what I use most in combination with ssh) I know of dante-client

This package provides the "socksify" client program - a tool which forwards network requests from any program to a SOCKS server (v4 or v5) which then performs them on your behalf.

Is that what you are looking for?

Try the ubuntu configuration first and see if other utilities are able to derive those settings. If not, configure them separately.
