Hello all out there. I would like to have a definitive answer to this question. Please dont think I am into anything shady.

As I am a home PC user, I never had the chance to experience networking stuff hands-on.

I have found a list of public proxies in my country. What do I have to do in order to get connected to them?

I have a proxy software.If I supply the IP address and port in the HTTP proxy option, will it do or I have to make a seperate rule for the tunnel protocol?

I have also seen a proxy setting in FireFox. If I simply give the server address there, will it do?
