ssh -D 8081 [email protected]
There is a chance that site block is more sophisticated and includes DNS blocks in which case http tunnel won't be able to load the website(unless you know the IP). In that case you should try using OpenVPN or using HTTP tunnel with DNScrypt. If you manage to successfully use DNScrypt and want to help out by writing a step-by-step wiki please contact us via the ticketing system.
