Tunnelling all traffic over wan proxy

Remember that WANProxy can be used as the SOCKS server, so your setup
should actually be fairly simple.

Found this tutorial (http://dtbaker.com.au/random-bits/redirect-all-traffic-through-transparent-socks5-proxy-in-linux.html) which sends all traffic over a Socks Server over SSH... So, in theory, just send the traffic to WanProxy first, then out though SSH and to a Socks server on the other end. Going to play around with this and see if i can get it working.

All traffic coming over the Ethernet nic gets natted to something and then passed though wan proxy, and over the 3G connection, possibly with ssh... I know how to setup a single connection (http proxy or the like) and possibly a VPN connection, but given the encryption on VPN, it may not be as deduplicatable as raw traffic...
