Anyone understand tunneling?

I just created a CentOS droplet and connected my Bitvise Shh clints to the droplet. And I’ve been able to tunnel my browser and applications to hide my ip.

I haven’t done a single thing to the server on this droplet. Now I get really confused. Shouldn’t I need to install something on the server before being able to forwarding my client’s data.

ps. If I destroy a droplet and then create another one, and maybe do this again and again. It charge me as only one droplet for this month, right?

This question was answered by @sierracircle:

ssh is what you are using to tunnel your traffic. It comes installed by default on most(if not all) Linux OS.

If you want to have a more permanent tunnel, you can install openVPN.

correct on your billing…you are basically charged by the hour. So if you destroy a droplet, and create a new one you will not have a higher bill at the end of the month.
