Question VPN + ssh tunnel can vpn track me?

I am connected to a work vpn. If I connect to a ssh tunnel to my own server (ssh -N -D stuff) and use that as a proxy in firefox, can the vpn get my browsing history?

I've done the VPN + SSH dance too. The short answer: you're good! Your browsing in Firefox with the SSH tunnel should stay off the VPN's radar. Did the same setup for privacy reasons – smooth sailing so far! However, you can add a Secure proxy to be even safer. Good luck!
