[CentOS] how to set default proxy?

I know that I could use ssh tunneling:

ssh -fND localhost:6000 SOMEBODY at -p PORTNUMBER

to surf the web through another machines internet connection -> I just need to set Firefox to use proxy 6000.


How can I set that on the client side, to e.g.: ping through the
machine with openssh-server? Not just setting Firefox to use port 6000.
Is there any method for setting the default proxy in Linux, so that if
I use wget, I will download through the ssh tunnel?

Thank you
