I have a virtual server in the US. When I first set it up I was able to use dynamic port forwarding with
ssh -D PORTNUMBER serveraddress
After that I could set up Firefox to use that as SOCKS5 proxy. I don't know what changed, but for some reason that doesn't work anymore.
Is there a place, where it is set if tunneling is allowed or not? I tried ssh_config file, there was in fact a
option, but even after switching it to yes and restarting, it didn't change anything.
Where should I look?
EDIT (01:41 GMT+1): The output with -vvv options is rather long, therefore uploaded it to pastebin. I hopefully removed all sensitive data: http://pastebin.com/r4BVC5F1
EDIT (02:13 GMT+1): New output file: http://pastebin.com/VvPVv0ff
I added the "PermitTunnel" option in my config file, now I can log in with -vvv active. However the proxy still won't work. I havent changed on settings on the client side, at least none that I know of. And yes, I 'm using Mac OSX.
EDIT (09:45 GMT+1): Could this have anything to do with messed up hostnames? Or maybe dante or squid configurations intereferring? I seriously don't know, why it's not working anymore...
LAST EDIT: OK, I'm just plainly stupid! Seriously. Everything worked fine. The problem was that I typed in the IP address of my server into the SOCKS server settings. Which can't possibly work. localhost ist of course the right answer. Darn... wasted so much time... Thanks everyone!
