Tunneling over SSH from Windows
You will need:
- Download and run PuTTY
- Open Putty, Category -> Connection -> SSH -> Tunnels.
- In the port forwarding section, add new forwarded port. Pick a source port. Any port will work, but 1080 is the standard for
socks 5 proxies. Leave Destination blank, and choose Dynamic (instead of Local or Remote). Click the add button, and you should see D1080 listed in the box.
4. Okay, now you can save your session and start it.
5. In applications you can go into their connection settings section and set localhost, port 1080 as the SOCKS host. The application will then tunnel everything through your SSH connection. You can test by seeing what IP [grabmyip] reports.
