SSH Tunnels How-to? 98

The_Spider asks: "I periodically browse the net and check web-mail at work, when I have the opportunity. I was wondering if anyone had a nice walkthrough on how to set-up an SSH tunnel. I'm not 100% newbish to Linux but I don't know where to start. (I have a Fedora Core box at home for NAT & DHCP) I'm hoping to combine this for use with portable Firefox. I'm not to worried about security, but I love the notion of taking a portable and encrypted browser with me from place to place. Can Slashdot help?" While this might be a bit FAQ, I figure Slashdot anecdotes on the use of SSH tunnels might be a bit more user-friendly than say, the several task-specific HOWTOs one can find via a Google search. ALso, I'm sure that there are a few of you out there who have discovered interesting ways of using SSH tunnels, not covered by said HOWTOs. So, how are you using SSH tunnels, and can you explain them to those who have not yet discovered the value of their use?
