This is a wonky way to set this up. The better way is to open port 22 on your home Linux box and from a remote location do: ssh -D 1080

<home>

Then configure your browser to use, localhost:1080 as a socks proxy. You're done. You've created a secure SSH tunnel to your home machine. Any sniffed traffic will look like encrypted SSH traffic. The way he has this setup, opening port 1080 sends all you're traffic (i.e. HTTP requests) in plain text.
