Force Chrome to tunnel DNS requests through a SSH socks proxy

Setup a socks proxy (check this page for more details) on port 8888 (the port is not that important).

Start chrome with the following parameters:

chrome --proxy-server="socks5://localhost:8888"

Also we can check if this works and run the following command on the SSH server. The tcpdump will show show dns traffic for any activity in Chrome.

tcpdump -i eth0 port 53
